PAIR oil leak

Hey all, I have been noticing a bunch of oil on the front of my engine. I looks like it is coming from the hoses that attach to the PAIR plates. Hoses seem attached well with clamps in right place. Does this sound like a normal leak? Any other suggestion of where it might be coming from? I really does look like its coming from those hoses and leaking down the front of the engine, but there is an awful lot, so.....

some info:
'02 919 with 39,000 miles, did valves a year ago, but I didn't see a leak until a couple of weeks ago.

Thanks all!

sounds like a bad seal between the valve cover and head on the pair hole... oil weeps out when that happens.

can we get a pic of it?

Just clean the whole area real good. Hoses, pair valve thingy,
valve cover... Then go for a good ride and stop once in a while
and check for oil. Try to pinpoint the leak.

Take the cheap hose clamp off and put a gear clamp
on the hose. Rittenhouse | Gear Clamp - Hose Clamps Stainless Steel

ya a bigger clamp might help you out.... but its weird that its leaking at the junction between the hose and cover... that means the reed valve isnt doing its job (closing on positive exhaust pulses) as well as a possible oil leak between the valve cover and head.

Time to remove the pair valves and block off instead.

Yeah yeah, I know!!
For some silly reason, I even subscribed to your youtube channel.
You havn't done anything new since the battery install. You are slipping!
But, I must admit, I do come back to your videos from time to time. Only when I need clarification on something.

You're still a troll!!

I've been thinking about blocking them off for a while. Should have done it while I had the cover off last year to do the valves. Guess I have a new maintenance project, thanks all!
