I thought maybe it’s gas and dirt, but it looks like oil. It doesn’t smell like anything like both. Baffled

I’ve done some digging on the enterweb and best I can tell is that it’s coming from the rear breather tube. If the O-ring breather tube or breather tube itself is damaged it will not recycle or vent oil vapor in to the airbox per web. I ordered a new breather tube, O-ring and new gasket for the top of throttle body. My gasket looks worse for wear. Note if your having to take the airbox out it’s the best time for a gasket check, breather tube check and tune up (spark plugs). This is per maintenance manual.
