2001 929rr oil leak

I have a 2001 929rr, And it is leaking oil somewhere on the left side of the bike. It is not a bad leak, only a few drops when I am riding. I was just wondering if this is a common problem for this bike?

Re: 2001 929rr oil leak

Almost all leaks manifest on the LHS since bikes lean to that side.
It's not uncommon to damage the cases on the LHS in a crash as the stator cover and stator are easily smashed.
Clean everything and warm the engine up to determine exactly where the oil is coming from.

Re: 2001 929rr oil leak

Just replaced the stator cover on the left side of my 01 929 earlier today. I accidentally knocked my bike over inside , in my room on carpet and it cracked the very bottom of the stator cover! : { Ordered one from ebay..original Equipment still in sealed box with gasket for 80 dollars shipped. Took me about 30 minutes to change it out. No more oil leakage.

Re: 2001 929rr oil leak

I will suggest to replace the Stator/Alternator Gasket and cover; RUDELY is right about the price; ebay/google those parts. But once that you open the cover all the oil WILL COME OUT, Heads up.

I just did that project a few days ago, ping me if you need more details but if you do have the 929rr's owner's guide go to the Stator/alternator section.
Good luck

Re: 2001 929rr oil leak

If you lean the bike to the right you won't lose the oil.

Re: 2001 929rr oil leak

If you mean the main oil gallery plug, no.
I think it might even specify loktite?

Re: 2001 929rr oil leak

The only reason I can imagine it ever being loosened is to check oil pressure or during a total rebuild.
