I continue to see oil spots on my chrome piece under my right leg on my '09 Vision. I had our local Vic tech look at it BRIEFLY to see what was going on....He said it was "probably" the overflow up around the cheese wedge...I was looking at it yesterday and noticed I now have a brown substance (presumably burned oil) on the jugs and valve cover on the back jug, there is a itty bit on the front valve cover but the back one looks like a HUGE bug splatter (but is slippery like oil not truly a bug)and of course the heat fins have the brown substance at the top slowly getting smaller as it migratesdown.
My question is why does it continue to happen? I can wipe off the oil on the chrome piece under my leg and in a couple of days notice that it is started back getting more blown on oil spotas...You can see the little drips and where the air has caused it to run a little...This has been going on for the past three oil changes andf I can't see how I would have excessive oil each time they did the oil change....Also, Had the 10K service done and nothign was noted out of the ordinary then either...But 10K service is not much really...
Any ideas???

Not right. How many quarts of oil did the use when they changed it? Did you check you level on the stick?

You did have the cam upgrade, something is not correct.

I don't want sound rude but do you check your oil with the bike upright or on the stand?
