How do everyone. I wonder if anyone could help. I’ve noticed a few drops of oil under the bike on the road. I think I’ve narrowed it down to a breather pipe behind the coolant bottle! Is this common? Anyone know on possible fixes?

cheers

Hello
I would start with an introduction: what bike model / year are we taking about? Mileage?
Also a few pics would help.
Many possible sources around the area of the breather hose including oil pressure switch, speed sensor, breather hose, breather cover gasket …

Oil leaks are pretty common occurrences with all motorcycles. We’ve seen oil leaking from just about anywhere you can imagine. Cracked pipes, loose fittings, shriveled up gaskets, dried up O-Rings.
The fix is to find the leak and make appropriate repairs.

Good point. I’ll go and try grab some pics in a tick. It’s on a 2014 striple R with about 12k on the clock. Fully serviced and up to date. I’ve checked and all seems to be clean and oil free under the bike and from
What I can see the breather pipes are the culprit!

cheers and all the best.

I’m going to try and take it down to a garage for them to look at. When I dab my finger in the drops it smells like oil and similar colour! What ever it is is coming from the breathers!

Did you wash the bike well before looking for a leak? Finding a leak source on a dirty machine isn't efficient.

Are you sure that it was oil that was underneath?
