I've got an 08' Versys as well. Just bought it with 49K miles. I did the oil, coolant, and replaced the air and oil filter...
Inside the air box was a bunch of goopy oil. This oil looked to me like engine oil, not from the filter being over oiled. Where is this oil coming from??
My air box also had a ton of oily grime outside on that short rubber drain hose. Now, my most recent find... and remember I just did a new oil change and made sure the entire area was clean and free of leaks, initially.
I have noticed oil which seems to be on the front engine face just above the oil filter. Is this oil coming from the same oil leak of the air box?? I'm sorry I don't have any picture.
Are these observations normal for a Versys? I hope this relates to and helps the original poster. Thanks!!
