    Absolutely! Bring it in and let them make their determination. Perhaps you have a good dealer who will not look for a reason to disqualify your claim, but rather find a way to make the bike right and satisfy the customer.

    Best of luck mate, let us know how it goes.

    Ah yes. I have heard of that before on some models. Upper right-hand-side of crankcase as I recall, and close enough to where you found the oil. Much better outcome than head or cyl block gasket! :)

    so that would be where I was seeing the weep?
    The dealer said it was like a mist if it was a cyl head gasket the oil would be constantly leaking.

    I will keep a eye on it and see what happens.


    do you have a pic of the sensor?

    Huh, @Blade runner 1 ? What's 'optimistic' about helping out with a response to a question?

    Wel got the bike back yesterday took her a run and low and behold the problem still isn’t fixed a small run of oil down the case. See pic. I’m thinking they need to change the head gasket and the cluctch casing gasket.

    Truly hope you get some joy tomorrow:).

    I know, but now it’s always going to play in my mind. I have a bit of ocd I wonder if they would buy the bike back off me?

    In a word, 'yes'. For 2 grand less than you paid!

    Don't be overly concerned though. This is probably one of those situations that is no serious problem - just annoying. As previously stated, I just hope it gets resolved for you.
