2018 GA - oil leak / drip

543 Views 10 Replies 8 Participants Last post by  PHXRider
For those of you following at home, in the last post there was heavy smoke in the exhaust:

I rode the newly repair bike ~100 miles mildly the day I picked it up. Parked it. That was on a Thursday.

Come out Saturday to ride it, and see this:

ok I think to myself, maybe there was some oil splashed or otherwise not cleaned from the repair. I degrease and clean the area and go on a ride Saturday.

~250 miles; nothing too wild

Bike didnt seem to perform poorly, and I didnt see any smoke or thick exhaust. Park the bike.

Today (Monday)

New Spot

same spot.

Welp time for another appointment. Any bets if I make a July 10 departure?

I would guess you have oil in the airbox again and the oil leak is weeping out of the condensate drain tube, around the plug.

No drain tube on 18' and above.

Hmm. Still shows it on the parts fiche for a 2020. Item #12.
