Oil Filter Cover Leak - Brutale 1090RR 2010

Hi, I replaced the oil filter and now there is a small leak (picture attached) on the cover. I tried 2 different washers, and tighten the screws probable more than I should it is still not fixed. I just read on the manual that I should put grease on the seal ring. Should I do that? Has anyone had this issue? Any other ideas?

Thanks

Just changed my oil and no leaks. That said, might be obvious but clean mating surfaces thoroughly including channel on cover. I used a thin layer of silicone grease. Tighten bolts to spec per manual believe it's 10nm.

I presume that you replaced the rubber o ring on the cover?

Be careful tightening the cover bolts, as there isn’t a lot of room to repair a stripped thread.
If the o ring is still in position, then either of the mating surfaces is not flat, or the groove is too deep for the o ring thickness to be effective. The last option is that the o ring is not to spec.

@be carrefull when thitening on my old 920 i have broke the thread. It could be repair easely with helicoil. Now i tigh it to 6/7 nm and it's enought. Maybe you can open again and check the condition of the seal. If still leakage put some sillicone

Ps: your oil will stay in the motor so you don't have to emptying it;

Thanks for all the good advise. I ordered a torque wrench and silicon grease and will try again. I'll let you know how it goes

I never had to use any type of grease or seal, just the oring. And Iíve been using the old oring for the last 3 changes since I cannot find the original filter with the oring in my country anymore.

I did had a leak some time ago but was due to a problem in the treads. Repaired it with helicoil and been fine.

I would suggest to use the torque wrench to be sure all bolts are within spec. Torque them in small torque increments and always the opposite bolts. And please clean all the oil on the treads and bolts before placing, otherwise you may damage the threads.

on the o'ring you can put engine oil. no need to have grease.

silicone sealant can be use if the oring not make is work
