I recently got home and realized that there is oil that seems to be leaking from the back left side under my gas tank. The oil leaked down the little plastic side pieces and then down the air intake and then down to the kickstand. I know its oil but I don't understand why there would be an oil leak as high as the gas tank. I lifted the tank up but cant see anything. There was also a little bit of oil in the airbox.
No. But "under the tank" to me means "between the ground and tank" which is a lot of real estate to guess where you are talking about. I have seen the tiny trim piece on the edge of the tank (1" piece of plastic that attaches to the lip) get hot and melt the adhesive, which looks a lot like oil.
if you love your motorcycle, set it free.. if it comes back and hits you.. you highsided
