Oil leak!
« on: July 08, 2018, 12:20:30 PM »
While I was cleaning/retensioning the chain last week I found this...



Think its the gasket between the primary chaincase and the transmission but I'm sure that someone out there will know.

Not happy. It's only done 3k miles. Now back at the dealers.  :232:
What a long strange trip it's been...

That's actually the alternator cover we're looking at....they don't have a primary chain.....Can you check to see if the oil is not leaking from higher up and dribbling down....possibly the rocker cover.??

Warranty job either way.

When I die, I want to go peacefully in my sleep like my Grandfather....not screaming like the passengers in his car..!

Bollocks to that - I'm damned if I'm spending my time cleaning it off if it's going in for sorting!   :013:
