Rebuild update: oil spray
Appears to be same as the 2011 10r recall of oil being forced out during operation, (which I also own).
After 12 days and 1200 miles of operation after dealer engine rebuild I noticed a couple drops of oil on garage floor yesterday. I looked and noticed film of oil on oil pan but did NOT look at the can. I noticed this morning that nothing leaked after the bike cooled.
Did the 200 mile loop this morning and noticed a couple drops of oil on the garage floor again after one hour of cooling. THIS time I noticed that 1/3 of the front of the graves can was lightly coated with oil
Meaning, the rear tire is getting oil spray.
Appears to be similar to the above mentioned recall. Have to inform dealer Tuesday.
Also, noticed the cam is making same dorky noise it did around 41k miles; cam was replaced under warranty at that time; thinking time to have that replaced again as dealer mentioned cams are rated about 35k miles.
Bike ran perfectly on the loop. Brain caught up with the bike yesterday with the bike floating on the loop today. Dang. Never know what to expect; but I learned after six-seven months of zero riding takes a few days for the brain to catch up with what it knows from the past. Like relearning algebra, trig and calculus.
