2010 F4 Leaking Oil from Side Cover

Hey guys Im not sure if this is a normal break in issue with the 2010 F4.. I seem to be leaking a few drops here and there of oil on the left side cover that is exposed from the fairing.. Not sure if the seal on the cover just didnt seal right or what but if anyone eles has had that issue id definetly like your thoughts before I drive up to San Francisco to take it up to the dealer.. Ive got about 350 miles on the bike so far. Ill include pictures.

I had a similar issue on my Y10 990 and took it back to Munroe Motor's. They have heard of a few Y10 bikes leak from the left side. They mentioned 3 issues with one being a tear down, but I was told the majority needed re-torquing or some minor part needed to be replaced.

In all honesty I don't recall the part but I have the service paperwork somewhere. My small leak occurred around 500 miles, did the 600 miles service and was told to monitor if it got worse. It got worse around 900 miles, so I took it in and they fixed it 4 days later under warranty, no leak since.

Call the service manager there and tell him about the leak.

Maybe that was Harley Davidsons contribution to the "New Design"
For Y10, while they Owned the Company.
(mine don't leak tho)
Easy fix anyway.............

I've had that too. It was noticed by the dealer and promptly taken care of. No big deal.

Had the same and problem lasted a few 00's km

Yes its curable and not serious however what I found out is that the upper and lower crank cases did not match 100%. Thus the oil rubber seal inside does not stop the oil from leaking. If you change the oil seal this may not stop. This is my case. Maybe yours its simpler issue and /or irrelevant. Maybe the cover is not tight enough.

So open it up and see why its leaking. If its knackered oil seal change it and probably you are done. If indeed crank cases do not match (assembly mistake) then you may have to file it a bit to bring the 2 surfaces together or use more sealant + oil rubber seal to cure. If you place your finger on the 2 surfaces join then you will 'feel' the lack of alignment (could be half a mm).

Search my threads I did write about this in 2009.
