    Hi, I spoted this oil leak on a L type connection between 2 pipes. What is this pipe? Should I worry about this leak?

    It looks like the Breather pipes from the pics it just the small amounts of oil that flows through them. Nothing to worry about. I personally would take the pipes off give the area a good clean and put it all back together.
