    hi all- I've owned my 2002 bmw f650gs for about 7 hours now and 80 miles. This wet tube/leak has developed and previous owner reports never seeing the entire hose wet- just that it needed drained every once in a while. There's nothing to drain and after a wipe down and continued riding- wet all over again. Any help would be appreciated.

    Brand new to dirt/dual sport riding. Got my feet wet with an r1100rt and now on a r1200rt. And the f650...loving it!!!

    That is the oil overflow tube from the air box, it suggests there is some oil in the collection area, take a look in the air box. The PO indicating it needed draining periodically suggests some pressurisation of the crank case or that the oil system has been overfilled, worth looking into
