oil leaking from front cylinder AIS port 2 Months, 1 Week ago  
for some reason i am having oil come out of the front cylinder AIS port when I ride. I spews out and gets all over side of bike and pants leg. any idea why this would be happening. I am thinking about removing the AIS this weekend but not sure why I have oil coming through it when there isn't supposed to be any there.

I can't think of any reason there should be oil there either. Does it do it at idle? Or do you have to have some rpms on it for it to happen? If you have oil in the cylinder, how do the front plugs look? You should be burning some oil and the plugs should reflect that. Is it possible that it's coming from somewhere else but appearing to come from the AIS?

Pictures would help us to see what's going on. Also take some time to fill in the information about your bike in your profile. This will give us a base to start from!

The AIS ports lead to outside the exhaust valves. Either your rings or valve guides are shot. Maybe your looking at the wrong thing.

Possibly one of the oil feed lines being misconstrued as part of the AIS?

I hadn't considered that, when the OP put this up. A very real possibility.
