I have oil in my air filter on my 2006 vstar silverado- is that usual for this bike I found oil dripping from my air filter compartment. I removed the cover and some oil was in inside the cover and looks to be in the air filter. Is this a bad blow by or just happens on this bike? Should I get a new filter too? The oil level is over 1/2 but not much. Changed to synthetic on May 25 this year.
