In the Shop now

Hi all. My 15 Street 750 only has about 2400 Miles. Is now sitting at my Dealer waiting for parts. No I didn't drop or crash it. The Tech has the engine opened up. The rear cylinder started spitting oil. On the Worst side possible. I saw some Spatter on the Drive Belt Guard. Wiped it off. Looked up. And saw a pea sized drop of oil on the corner of the engine fin. it was 2nd or third from the bottom. Called my dealer. He had me bring it in. They looked at. Saw oil residue on the back half of the cooling fins. Tech looked at it. They're hoping its only the "Cylinder Head Cover". They ordered the gasket and the mounting screws. Hopefully it will be fixed before the 21st. I need it for the MS: Coast The Coast Tour that weekend.

Terrible news man! Good thing the dealer is taking care of it. Did you mention you used the FP3 as well?

The Tech that is working on my bike knows I have it. But that has no bearing on the Oil Leak.

It sounds like a gasket link. If that's the case, it's an easy fix.

The Fix did not last. Rear Cylinder is leaking again. Has ben at the dealer since Monday night. They just looked at it today. Ordered another gasket and hardware. The Tech has not taken the engine apart yet to determin What is causing the leaks. I'm starting to regret buying this bike.

I like the bike but in my case Im have began to itch over the time in shop to road ratio. I can only imaging if they had tried to fix something a couple times and still had problems
