Weird... This is dust inside the air box (before the filter). It adhered to the plastic in these strange patterns for some reason. I see no kind of glue or substance that would attract it like that. It's not stuck there in the least and wipes right off with a fingertip. Cant figure it out.

With modern emissions, you cant just vent the crankcase into the atmosphere like we could in the old days.

Now, this vents into the airbox. Under normal conditions its normal to see a light, super light, mist oil film inside the airbox.

On some bikes, you'll see real oil build up if you fill to the top fill line and run at high rpm. The old Kawasaki zx12 did this.

I bet no one was when the new parts before assembly. No doubt there would be some sort of release agent present, on the plastic as well.

Static attraction ?
Did not see anything like that in mine but yours looks very pretty.

Looks like something out of a micro biology lab or a crystalline growth structure.
Haven't a clue what it is but I must agree with the others.
It sure is purdy:)

Agreed, lol. Yet the mystery persists! Where is Sherlock Holmes when you need him?
