Leaking oil droplets

from my brutale 09' 1078rr.. any suggestions? i brought to the shop, guy did a change of an oil shield?

i took back the bike yesterday, and these pics are from the last 2 days.

will be bringing it back to the shop again.. but if anyone has a similar problem and can help to pinpoint from the pics, much appreciate. thanks.

pic 1- pic with the red arrow is where the main drops are coming down to.
pic 2- can see the spray under the exhaust.
pic 3- close up shot of under, from where i think the leak coming from, can't tell a thing.

You need to completely clean the area ...completely...use brake clean and get all the gunk and grime off. Then get some dry powder unscented foot spray (or better: developer for dye penetrate test..visit your welding supply shop.), Spray the powder everywhere you think it could be coming from, start the motor and watch for a dark brown spot to appear at the source.

What kind of chain lube are you using???.

Oil pan is a common leak point, although yours appears to come from higher up. Shift shaft seal?? Good luck.

By the way "Crown brand Fault Finder" is a very affordable brand of Dye Penetrate Test developer.

@philiplolc; What is an "oil shield"?

I am assuming the leagage was not present before the mechanic touched your bike....

i'm not sure too.. that's what the mechanic said he was replacing.


bit of history.. i just bought this bike a week ago.. collected the bike last Mon.. noticed some leaks, so i returned the bike to the shop on Wed.

mechanic checked it, changed "oil shield" or something.. i collected it again 2 days ago, on Sat.. and still leaking.

so basically, i'm gonna have to return it back to the shop, get them to fix it up again properly before giving it back to me.. its still under warranty from them, and we've got some "lemon" law thing.. so they just have to fix it.

just a waste of my time, if i have to keep bringing the bike back to the shop.. and i wanted to check with you all if its a common problem, and whether easy to find the problem.. i did a quick search, and seems quite a few guys also have oil leaks.

hopefully its just a small leak and easily fixed, and not a bigger problem, otherwise i'd have to return the bike altogether.

thanks for your input guys.. i'll have to get the mechanic do a better job this time and get him to check thoroughly:
-Front sprocket shaft seal
-Oil pan
-Shift shaft seal

the thing is.. it doesn't leak when its not warmed up.. so even the shop didn't see the leak, or they just kept it hush hush when they sold it to me.. bit of a pain having to keep going back

It is not normal, or even common for MV Agustas to leak oil. You may have found references to leaks on the forum, but I assure you they are a minority of the bikes and most are on bikes with many miles, or recent service that caused the leak.

Ask the mechanic if he did a powder test to find the leak? I don't think it is your sump pan....higher up. If replaced something to correct the leak I would not expect to see that much grunge in that area. It should be pretty clean.

doubt the mechanic did any significant test.. you can see the gunk under there, looks like its been there for ages.. i'll get him to look higher up

hopefully its just a seal somewhere and nothing more serious.. if its a cracked something would be bad.. anyway i'm going down to the bike shop tomorrow.. will know soon.. thx again
