2008 F4 312r

Just noticed a couple oil drops rigth under the radiator, look under by the fairing and there was one more drop, and that was it, my bike has only 2445 miles. 3 oil changes, at 600 at about 1000 and the last one at about 1800, could it a loose filter or drain plug, this week end I'll be looking by taking the panels off; any ideas? Thank you all and a Happy Thanksgiving every body.

I would look at the oil filter seating area and I would look at the area where the sdie stand mounts to the oil sump. Historically, there are sump bolts that can back out and the sealing area will leak. There are some other threads in here aobut oil leaks...they have pictures and remedies. Try the SEARCH function and you may find your answer.

Look at the oil cooler. The bolt, number 22 in the picture, may need tightening a bit.

Any idea what the recommended torque is?

The dealer fixed the oil cooler leak on mine while I had it in for some other warranty work so I don't know the torque value. Couldn't find it in any of my manuals either, sorry.

If there is no specific torque listed for this particular bolt you can use the generic torque for that particular bolt size what ever it may be. Check out the manual and find the generic torque values. The last thing you want to do is strip the threads because you over tightened it.
