i will take a look at the hose thank you..... now that i think about it ... possible the rear shock i just put in  because the oil is fresher looking and clearer... i have to take a closer look in the morning, it was dark and late at a gas stop

Pull the tank and make sure the valve cover gasket is not leaking. Since we did the valves, it is possible the gasket might not be properly positioned. Or one of the new grommets might not have sealed.
The glass is not half full, it was engineered with a 2X safety factor.

thank you , it did hit me that the oil looked sticky on the tires, 2+2 is not = to 4

anyhow, too much uni filter oil on the air filter and was dripping out of the box, scare over... next scare
