Question about 2006 Yamaha V Star 1100 Silverado
I found oil dripping from my air filter compartment. I removed the cover and some oil was in inside the cover and looks to be in the air filter. Is this a bad blow by or just happens on this bike? Should I get a new filter too? The oil level is over 1/2 but not much. Changed to synthetic on May 25 this year.

SOURCE: Oil check
By now you've noticed it's not possible to sit on the bike and see the sightglass at the same time...get yourself an inspection mirror from Harbor Freight or anywhere that has tools. Get one with a handle that telescopes out. This way you can sit on the bike and use the mirror to see the sightglass. This will allow you to move the bike slightly off center and find the oil level. If it's covering the sightglass completely, it's too full. Black oil indicates a change badly needed and perhaps a filter that's not working properly. If it's still in breakin, then it's still under warranty. Get with your dealer..

hi 81 yamaha i am concerned about the fuel smell coming out with the oil. could be the carbs flooding filling your crankcase with fuel? if not it sounds like you have blow by which would cause your crank case to be slightly pressured. this is caused by worn piston rings. do not plug your crank vent. if you leave your vent open install small filter to stop dirt from entering jim

if you take off the clutch cover and look to the bottom right of the engine you will see a black ruber strip. Pull this out and thats your oil filter. Unlike your usual filters you can just clean it and place back in.

The filter is located under the Yamaha plate on the right side of the engine. You have to remove the front cylinder exhaust pipe to get to it. The filter cover is behind the exhaust pipe. If you have boards instead of pegs on your bike you have to also take loose the right board and brake pedal assembly. You may be
able to get to the filter cover by just loosening the exhaust header and the muffler brackets so that the pipe can be moved aside so you can get an allen wrench into the bolts holding the cover on. There are five allen head bolts.
Once this cover is removed, you will have access to the filter plate holding everything in. Pay attention to how the filter comes out. The filter will fit back in either way, but it does make a difference for it to seal properly. Check the O-ring on the cover. Again, be careful to put the filter back in the same way it came out.

Testimonial: "thanks it was very helpful"
sounds major. Clanking and low on oil sounds like a broken piston ring. Suggest dealer check with compression tester rear cylinder. Replace v star with Harley if necessary.
