Bike runs good but, carburetor intake has oil coming out. Spark plugs are dry. Bike has 59000+ miles on it.

These bikes do not have carburetors. They are all injected.

As for oil getting into the airbox, dollars to donuts the engine is overfilled.

Never fill to the max level on the dipstick as it will cause that exact problem.

Also, while the book says capacity is 1.7Liter the real capacity is 1.5Liter.

On mine, oil level on the stick is just a smidge above minimum (about 1/3 between minimum and maximum)

I'm going to put everything back together and try the 1/3 above minimum. This is the first time I've noticed this problem and I've been riding this bike since 2012. I've got a ride to go on this weekend so I'll give it a try.
Thanks for all the help
