  5. One-two drops of oil - CX650C

    Technical Help Forum
    Just out of curiosity, after about a 10 minute ride, my bike drops about 1-2 drops of oil, right side at foot peg. Every once in a while, I'll have a small trace of oil on my right shoe. Is this common? I've tightened everything there, but it makes no difference. I can live with this, and I...

    I was wondering if anyone knows what that smaller bolt sticking from the side is for and why I would have oil leaking from it? At first I though the leak was from a bad o-ring in that bolt cap below it but that cap is on so tight that i'm not going to get it off without snapping it. This is a...

  11. Please help me identify mystery parts!

    General Discussion
    I took off the rear engine cover to fix a slight oil leak coming from my weep hole. The little round rubber oil seal was ruined (looks like I accidentally squashed it at some point when I did my stator swap).
