Help with oil leak in strange area.

Oil is leaking out from this unit. I am finding it on the bottom of the metal bracket. The bolt that holds this on has no depth to it at all and I am not able to place a socket on it to see if it need tightened. I can only find the oil on the bottom of the bracket and behind it. Please advise.

Andrew, remove the silver spring clip first...it hold the bolt from turning...then tighten the bolt and reapply the spring clip.

A flat blade screwdriver will pop the spring clip off.

Thanks guys. I could not tell if the clip was held by the bolt or not. Will fix tonight when I get home.

Everyone of those I've managed to do up with a spanner from the side, and probably more than 25nm, without removing exhaust system Andrew, it's just a bit tricky but very do-able. Removing and replacing the clip is the hardest part.

K. I got the clip off. Tightened the bolt and clip but back on. I will see in the morning if that fixed her. One of the easiest fixes I have done.

You know Andrew by now. If he does something he does it GOOD!

What a beast of a motorcycle!
It growls and rages and flies across the tarmac like a wild animal that has escaped the confinement of a cage and after merely waiting restlessly until the release, will not endure being locked up ever again.


Skye I miss you. L'essentiel est invisible pour les yeux.
