oil in airbox
2009 Vee, 90,000 km.
Due to severe sluggishness above 5000 RPM I decided to do a dirty fuel pressure test (cycling the ignition on 3 times until the ecm completed its cycle). I only got 50 ml instead of 300-350 ml. During on road testing I cranked the throttle way back (numerous times) even though there was no response hoping that the problem would go away. but it didn't.
Now I noticed that oil was dripping onto the wiring under the air box. When I took the air box cover off the filter was dry albeit dirty, in the bottom of the air box was an accumulation of oil which I cleaned up with paper towels.
My question is could the oil accumulation in the air box be caused by me cranking on the throttle even though the engine was bogging out or should I be looking for something else?
