Anybody else got/had this problem?

Dealer is telling me it's off the chain as a result of first service, I'm thinking not.

Clean it off. If it comes back probably oil leak. Maybe at oil filter cover

He's probably telling you half the truth.

Yes, it's a result of the first service, but more like where they spilled engine oil during filter change and didnt bother to cover or clean the exhausts.

Scrubbed the shit out of it, won't clean off, but it's clean enough to see if it comes back fresh. Will let you know.

Geeteethree, that looks like oil...I'm sure that aint chainlube either as chainlube does not leak that way...could be what XBox said..."spilled engine oil during filter change..."

Geeteethree, use 3M scotch bright scrub/cloth...rub it the same direction as the natural aluminum texture...then get a can of degreaser...spray above, below, inbetween the aluminum cover and the muffler...let the degreaser set for 10mins, then hose it off...

That way you will know if the oil is coming from the engine...as the oil residue on the muffler or engine was already cleaned out by the degreaser.

Same thing on mine, clean it up sooner the better, before it burns in a mark
