So I just recently bought the R7 2 weeks back and have about 500 miles on it.. Keep noticing black oil marks at the end of the exhaust even after wiping down several times. Has anyone else had this problem or is it part of the breaking in period??

I think thats soot not oil.
After the bike cools down theres a little bit of condensation in the exhaust, and the next time you start the bike that + exhaust gases 'shoot out' as kind of soot.
Perfectly normal
