Did y'all notice Eli's bike smoking last weekend? Kinda looked like it was coming from the back wheel area. The more I looked it may have been the engine PCV venting.

Saw that last year and zoomed in in slow motion to see it and you are correct.

I noticed it from the very beginning of the main and I was surprised nobody mentioned it. I just assumed it was something obvious and his bike was fine.

I suspect that they have had so many clutch issues with that generation engine that they purposely overfill the engine with oil.... since they can't modify the engine cases.... which makes it cough smoke out easier.

Just theorizing.

“It’s just a little oil leak”. Can’t wait for this type of insight & wisdom again for the rest of the series.

Good way to kill the rest of the engine. Over fill it - likely large increase in aeration.
