    oil in lamda sensor?

    Hi everyone.
    i am new in this forum and i just bought speed triple 2010 john bloor edition
    i am really worried because i have seen oil around lambda sensor and i notice of that because smoke comes out from the this sensor lambda
    the sensor lambda i am talking about is next to the oil filter (exhaust)picture attached
    please could you tell me if do i have to be concerned about it?
    where this oil comes from?
    do you know if there is a place in the motorbike underneath with seals or something?
    the motorbike is in the garage and i can not check this area......i am worried about it
    its normal when you change the oil filter this area gets oil in this area?
    do you know if are there seals in this area that could be the cause?
    many thanks in advance guys.
    best regards.

    the shifter shaft has a seal that can leak, you can also get oil leaking down from excessive chain lube building up under the front sprocket cover.
    another possibility is the oil pan bolts are loose, this is very common. I don't have the torque spec on hand, but it's not much, like very very light

    I may be mistaken, but that looks like an earlier model header pipe. Donít the newer models (including 2010) have the bung more toward the front of the headers? I have an 06 and the bung is in the same spot. Sorry if Iím confusing the issue. And I donít believe it matters anyhow. Just an observation.

    Edit: upon a closer look at the photos, I believe itís from an 07. Feel free to ask me why I am so sure of the year.
