Another mystery oil leak????
I've searched the topic & read several threads. One of them that I found it my leak - at least as far as I know so far. I had my dealer do my 25k oil change. And of course it leaked as soon as I brought it home. For a while I assumed it was due to a sloppy job with the filter (guy didn't impress me - tightened down my wife's adjustable foot pegs because they swiveled (as they should)).
Anyway the leak has gotten worse. Lot of oil on underside and leaves at least a tablespoon of oil each ride now. In fact drips when not ridden. All drain plugs ok & not leaking. Not coming from filter, oil cooler adapter, shift linkage, stator wiring, or what I assume is oil pressure sensor. Primary & derby cover good. Comes from very front. Thought was oil cooler at first, but it seems ok but all wiring behind it is soaked. All wet from there back. Dripping off frame too. Mostly on right (high) side. And interestingly the oil is very clear. Primary looked low to me so changed it today. Crank case seemed a little over full so I sucked that down a bit. Not showing over full. 3/4 up grid cold. Transmission good.
Bike is a 13RGU with 26k miles. No engine mods.
If anyone has an idea I'd love to hear it. Going to take it to dealer this week.
