Hey,

I have noticed early on that there has been carbon residue at the exhaust tip. I have 1,200 miles on the bike but I noticed it at about 300 miles.

Also, I have seen a couple drops of oil on the ground from what I believe to be the air box drain hose.

Are either of these issues cause for concern?

I think its just dirty condensation water from the operation of the cat.

The way the exhaust is positioned it will catch the carbon deposits. To keep from it getting ugly just wipe with a wet rag every so often. I have noticed a decrease of those deposits every since I started running the gears at at higher RPM. For example I stay in 3rd from 30-40mph, 4th from 40-50mph, and so on. This BEAST of a triple loves it.
