I did some maintenance and need help

-Checked the drive belt because i have tracks and heard the tracks are hard on the belt but there were no cracks or noticeable wear.
-Changed the oil and check my air filter, when i check that there was blue goo? (Attached photo) At the bottom of the box, whats is it ?!?
-When tightening the oil filter, it got tight but felt like it could keep turning it, i do my own oil changes on the truxk but normally the filter stops spinning? Any advice ?
-Also now my accessories arent working , i assume i blew a fuse some how? Any ideas here?

That looks like the remains of a little excess foam filter oil. No big deal. Too much is better than too little.

Edit: forgot to comment on oil filter. Do the threads match those on old filter? Is the gasket still on? Is it the right filter?

Your air box blue goop is
nothing more but excessive air filter oil....nothing to stress over

Oil filter must stop turning if not, something wrong.... Mite be wrong part number or just a bad filter....

Electrical, I would start with fuses.

What accessories do you have that are not working?

I also agree in checking the fuses in the battery compartment.

So i pulled the fuses , they were good and i put them back in. Then i played with the wire connections to the LED switched and that seemed to work. The LEDs came on with. I guess i have to check the wire connections to the switch ? I dunno what happened, ive had no problems with it for 2 years but i have been doing alot of trial rides lately, maybe loosened a connection? (I had the lights installed by local dealer but theyre known for sub-par mechanics but i like to support local businesses )

Yup the blue goo was in my air box too when I cleaned the filter the first time, that’s the color of the foam filter oil Yamaha uses at the factory and they put way too much on.

The oil filter just sounds like the incorrect one, or bad threads from mfg.

I plan on oiling my own filters from here on out, so this is good to know. Thank you for posting.

I'd suggest you do the air filter mod for long engine life.
If your oil filter doesn't tighten up you should not run the engine.

Primethious is one hundred percent right, you have a faulty filter or the wrong one. Don't run that engine until you figure this out.
