Red face F4 1000R oil leak

I noticed oil from a drip under the bike that looked like it was coming from the heat exchanger.

Out came the tools and tightend up that bolt in the middle of the heat exchanger, which stopped that leak.

While running the bike to check for other leaks i noticed a very slow drip. It looked like it was coming from a bolt located between the heat exchanger and the oil filter.

Does anyone know what that is or how to stop this leak ? I'm tempted to just throw a spanner on it and see what happens but thought i had better know what I am dealing with first.

Thanks for any help you can give me.

It might be best to wipe all clean and double wipe with brake cleaner then dust the area to find the originating spot. Oil travels.

That oil filter looks suspiciously new and clean. Take a look there if you recently replaced it.

Look around the filter, there appears to be a bead of oil around the seal. Give a little more twist to the filter AFTER wiping clean.

Thanks Edward i will try to find the source of this drip but on first inspection it seems like its coming from this bolt.

Dav777 new oil and filter but the drip is not coming from there. thanks for the suggestion

Oil filter checked and is sound, it is not the source of the leak

George is it leaking from the heat exchanger like this thread suggests which is quite common.
It could be leaking from the top and running across and then down onto the bolt you showed.

Check!

Bolt number 32 but maybe bolt above. Looks like a washer is needed number 33. Even number 34 or 35 o-ring inside of the exchanger.

I bet tho if the clip is secure the o-rings will work better.

George,

Have a look at the clip in the pic for your heat exchanger. Shouldn't it be clipped down and not floating? That's a separate issue but take a look anyway.
