Splatter from the exhaust?

Had the bike backed up against a wall and noticed that I got a bit of splatter on the wall from the pipes when idling/revving. Unburnt gas? Oil, maybe?

Anyone else get this?

How long had the bike been sitting before start up?

Was it greasy? watery? Color?

Possibly condensation in the pipes blowing out with some carbon build up?

The places my 919 has taken me:

I have had I burnt fuel out of mine in the past. In fact one night after many drinks my friends and I lit the exhaust on fire with a torch.

Dirty color. watery/greasy.

Admitedly the bike had been sitting for a while. But its always hot as hell in these parts, condensation unlikely. Will repeat the exercise and take better note of what I'm seeing.

Does the "running rich" reputation of the 919 cause unused fuel to splatter?

My son was standing behind my 919 one night while it was running and he had black specks on his face afterwards. The bike had been ridden pretty much every day before so it definitely hadn't been sitting.

It's just a temp change, unless ur rings went south from sitting so long j/k no really Oregon weather does this all the time, sometimes it gets really bad, cars, trucks and bikes, there's been times when I fire up my DRZ even in the summer and it will start blowin water/fuel/black crap out the exhaust, sometimes daily it's a pain to keep it clean in the winter

In the end, if it's not a lingering smoke or steam(antifreeze) then ur all good, just keep it away from the walls and white cars :-)

The main products of combustion are energy, carbon dioxide and.... water. Stop parking your bike near the wall.

Situation normal then, just never took note of it before.

Carry on then, boys.
