Re: Oil on the frame slider bolt.

I was changing my oil today and noticed a little bit of oil on the end of the right frame slider bolt. I removed it and there was oil in the hole. I had remembered someone else had the same thing but there's nothing conclusive in the old thread. It appears that the threads on the right side forward engine mount are machined close enough to the camchain galley that they actually are letting oil into the threads. I checked carefully for cracks and cleaned and inspected the hole but nothing looks wrong. I definitely am using the proper bolt and they are torqued to spec. I smeared a little silicone on the bolt and reinstalled it. Now I'm crossing my fingers.

Another great site to visit.

Re: Oil on the frame slider bolt.

Dang, that sounds a little creepy. Never noticed that on mine when I did the sliders. Maybe if the bolt was just a tad too long I'd heard it could penetrate a galley but I just assumed it would be water, not oil.

Maybe your valve cover is leaking!??!! Sounds all very strange. I hope someone else can shed some light on this.

Re: Oil on the frame slider bolt.

Mine was the same on one side, I wouldn't worry about it. There must be an oil passage around that area and it is creeping into the threads.

Re: Oil on the frame slider bolt.

Yep, same deal here. The right slider has oil in the bolt hole. I took mine into the shop and had them look at it and they didn't really find anything. They are a fairly decent shop so I wouldn't worry too much about it.

Re: Oil on the frame slider bolt.

I stopped by the shop in Oakland yesterday and the tech there also said don't worry about it. I feel better now.

Re: Oil on the frame slider bolt.

Same here, slight oil on the bolt (no slider installed) and I've had it checked a few times (so it's on record) they could find nothing wrong. So it looks like a design flaw but considering the oil is so little and appears to make no difference to pressure I'd ignore it.

I must say though I notice if I I spend more time at higher revs then there is a little more oil (still only enough to wet a finger tip) after say 500km or so. So it's pressure relief valve !!
