Oil getting air filter

I have an 07 Honda Shadow Spirit 750. Today at 13,000 miles I removed the air filter element to replace the filter. The housing had a lot of oil inside. Is this normal or do I have a problem?

The engine breather pipe is mostly routed to the air cleaner box, if it gets oily means the piston oil rings are the culprit.
You can do one thing to make sure though, remove the breather pipe at the air cleaner housing and start the bike, see if there are signs of bluish smoke or oil vapours emitting there.

yes but you may have to get a small section of flat iron (any metal) and use it as a mobile mount for the rear of the pipes. the pipes will fit the block though.

SOURCE: 2003 honda shadow spirit vt750 carbs

It is different then most other carbs. DON"T DRILL ANY BRASS HEADS LOOKING FOR THE AIR FUEL MIXTURE. The air fuel mixture is the only adjustment you can make. It is located on the bottom side of the air intake, right behind the air filter box. It looks like a 1/4" flat metal plug. Do NOT drill this. There is no slot for a screw driver. There is a tool which is no more then a small piece of pipe that fits over this plug and you turn it in till seated, gently. Count the turns. Back out to 2 and a half turns, thats normal. Or if you no that you need more fuel injected, simply turn the screw OUT 1/4 or 1/2 turn and try it. GOOD LUCK (Its not hard)
There is no drilling to be done. Hope i didnt scew something up on mine......

An engine never misfires due to these things. It is always because of maladjustment of the timing at the CB points. Check the timing and set it right.
