    Normal for a bit of oil around the air filter?

    Had a dusty race and noticed there is abit of oil around the air filter holes. Not alot just enough to see it on the dust. Just got the fork back from service so just trying be sure

    Perfectly normal, the air filter is like a sponge filled with oil, on the first few rides after the filter has been re-oiled (new Lefty or after a service), it's common for the extra oil to leak out a bit, it will stop after a while.
