More info please.
What are the symptoms that make you think you have oil in your gas?
Smoke? When? What color?
Plugs sooty or fouled?
What are the compression figures?
Has the bike sat for long periods of time?
What brand of tires are mounted?
Oops, different list, sorry.

Empty the crud in your crankcase breather storage tank.

Edit, I just went into the garage and emptied mine. There was 1/2 cup of brew in there.

When the carbs were rebuilt, were the plenum seals replaced in the air box? On the 1100, fuel travels through the plenum and if there is a leak, you got trouble. The other guys have good points as well.

Ditto, but that doesn't explain oil in the gas. You or someone else would have had to pour it in there. I put 2 stroke oil in my gas on purpose.

Condensation that isn't dealt with (functional crankcase breather) would cause an oily, milky film throughout the engine and the air filter housing.

Yes, and your point is what?

I think the OP is describing an oily film in his airbox. An engine with a clogged air filter can breathe through its crankcase, pulling oil to the intake, being the powerful pump that it is.

Wash your airbox, change your air filter, empty your crankcase breather tank and change your oil and your problem will probably be gone.

Yes I figured that is what he may have meant but it is not even close to what he wrote in the thread title, I was being a little sarcastic with my comment but people need to describe the problem they have with a little more clarity.
