Oil leak
« on: May 12, 2015, 02:19:18 pm »
Used the bike to find that I have an oil leak, just below the clutch plate housing. Check my oil level a it not drop. So clean the excess off the fairing. Rode home to find more oil on the fairing.

Called Carl Rosners and they booked it in for tomorrow with a lone bike made available to me. Hope it's sorted before 28th May as I'm off to the Isle of Man. Will keep you posted to what the issue may be....... She only done 8430 miles so unable speculate what the problem may be at this stage.

Hi GJ-Trophy,

Sorry to hear of this - It doesn't seem to be a common problem,
so will hopefully be something simple, like tightening up the clutch cover bolts as here : Oil Leak ?,
or tightening up the oil pan / sump bolts as here : Oil sump / drain pan oil leak

Please keep us posted !  :028:

Thanks Coconut.

I would hope that all the bolts are tighten to the correct setting. If not then a replacement gasket may be called for. Rather than trying to tighten bolts further and stripping the threads.

Will keep you posted, hopefully it something small.

But I do like Carl Rosner service and wanting to resolve the problem.

Mine had a similar leak and the cover bolts were loose, I just snugged them up a bit evenly and it hasn't leaked since. My 2013 Bonneville developed several different leaks in its first year and most were due to loose bolts not being tightened to spec.

After I lost a lot of oil over the back wheel of my sprint I checked the bolts on the trophy and found one of the covers loose.  There was a slight film of oil around the cover but the bolts were quite loose.  I blame the rubbish dealer I got it from though.  Just snugged them up and all has been well for about 25k. Miles.
