I'm not sure but that was from practice/qualifying.

Why not just put a oil cooler on it to help out?

Williamson talked about it last year...it comes down to clutch abuse, and a small amount of oil dripping onto either the engine or exhaust (obviously crankcase vent as well, as seen in the photo above).

He said the oil is completely black after a single heat race.

I recall McGrath would completely notch a clutch basket (prior to the proliferation of Hinson akadized baskets) in one moto....

These dudes are gnarly....

The crankcase vent location is in a different position than it was on older engine, so the venting steam/smoke is more visible.

I might be wrong but I’m pretty sure Kawi has said it’s nothing to worry about.

I noticed it in certain angles on multiple bikes last week at St. Louis when they did the two doubles across the start lane.

I noticed that too, but chalked it up to an optical illusion of lights in the background since it happened at the same spot as the camera followed different bikes.
