I have a 1 year old Honda HRX217HXA and noticed that the governor arm area seems to seep a bit of oil. Dirt collects in the area and I have to wipe it off from time to time with a rag and q-tips. Is this a common issue with Honda engines? Anyone else notice a slight seepage around the governor shaft on the carb side of the engine?

I have never noticed it, if it is still under warranty take it in and have them fix it. Definitely looks to be leaking.
