Coolant weep hole mess!

I am getting a lot of oil out of the weep hole. Oil level is right on par with where it should be, and I don't seem to have an excessive amount of oil in the sir box. PCV system also seems to be functioning as designed. Any thoughts?


P.S. I usually ride fairly hard, and see RPM's from 4500> rev limiter regularly.

What year is your bike? The later ones, from at least 2001 on, had a drainage tube from the weep hole. Is the oil coming from a tube or directly from the weep hole? Usually it's coolant leaking from the weep hole that shows that the water pump seal needs replacing.

It's not coolant, it's oil. I run water and WaterWetter. Mine is a '98. Sound like if they put a drainage tube on there, it was to fix the issue I am having then. It's not a whole ton of oil, just enough to notice and annoy me.
