Oil spill near the cap
on: November 15, 2021, 10.44 AM
Do you guys notice some oil marks near the oil tap? I haven't opened it or anything and checked if its properly tightened but still I clean the bike and after 2-4 days I see fresh marks of oil near the cap. Do you have the same?

Some were saying that there was an 'O' ring missing under the cap, check yours.  :028:

Hello, so O-ring is there, but they told at the dealer that they tend to be somewhat bad. So they replaced it and I ordered a machined oil cup just to be sure.
