Just bought a bike (first bike) and noticed it was leaking a bit. Did a bunch of research and decided today to take off the lower fairing and left it on for a good 10 mins and sit for couple days to check for further leak.
Update: After couple days i got this...
After a couple days i got this... Any idea what this red looking fluid is?
There was a BUNCH of gunk on the lower fairing / side fairings and wasnt sure if the bike was heating that up and then dripping so cleaned both. Couple pictures below....
BEFORE - Not cleaned
And after i cleaned sorta...
So now im just waiting for a leak to show and based from from ive read maybe try putting some pouder on to outline leak stream.
Hopefully it was just the gunk heating from maybe older leak.
Ive noticed it seems to be more where you drain the oil. However i did notice a some drops towards the kickstand. Im mainly concerned with the front portion leak. The oil pan i believe (where you drain) i did notice a small drop formed after 10-15 mins of having the bike on but nothing huge and just leaving the bike alone for a couple days doesnt produce a huge leak. Its more happening over a longer period of time and after ive turned on the bike.
Anyone have any extra tips to try or certain places to keep a special eye on. Im not a mechanic in any shape or form lol.
Also how worried should i be of this problem?
