    Hey hey boys!

    So I noticed a small drip of oil coming from my stator cover and when I opened it, about a 1/4 QT drained out! From what Ive read, this is supposed to be a dry stator, so is it the seal (500 miles since rebuild) or a pressure issue?



    There was a post here from a guy that said he had a similar issue and was a pressure problem when he heated up, ran a 1/6th line through the rubber grommet where the wires go through to the airbox.... Any ideas?
