Dont worry its not a 4 stroke. It just moisture mixed in with some exhaust crude.Or your chain case cover is leaking which is by your ehhaust nipple.

If it was coming out of your exhaust then don't worry about it. Once it is cold enough to ride, let it sit and idle for a few minutes (5 should be plenty) and see if the snow is black undder the exhaust outlet. If it is, then your either too rich in jetting or using too much oil. Both of these problems if you have one are very easy to fix. If you have problems in the snow, e-mail me and I'll help you with it. It is cheap and easy to fix though.

If you fogged it before storage it's most likely that fogging oil coming out.

What kind of sled is it ? I have a Mach-z and when I first got it .... black liquid was coming out of the exhaust to .... Turned out being a stuck choke . As for the oil light ??? can't help you there .. You could take the exhaust off and empty it ... just to see .... If you got a tripple tripple and find liquid in one of the exhaust ... that's the one that the choke is stuck ... :D

I would tend to think that it is the engine fogger too. Chaincase is another good one. Just curious, as to how old your sled is and if it is a triple. What are you riding?
