I had a leaky Rear Cylinder Cover on mine. Repaired Twice under Warranty. About 1800 Miles apart. Oil dripped onto the Belt Guard.

I had a cracked neutral switch that leaked a small puddle of oil on the floor. 3" spot. Looked like it was coming from the output shaft.

Ill check the output shaft . looks like its coming from left side but maybe only because it leans that way on the kick stand. Shiifter shaft is dry and oil filter and drain plug seem ok.Only leaks a few drop a night in the garage. IS this covered under warranty. The bike is a 2015 but only has 70 mi. now?

The collection point in your photograph is identical to mine with the cracked neutral switch.

I have a 2015 street 750. Had the same issue. Got it replaced once at the 1000 mile checkup. Second time at 3,500 miles. Basically twice in the first two years, and before I put it away this year, I noticed it was leaking again at just over 4,500 miles. This was my first bike, so I thought the initial time might be wear from me basically learning on the bike. The second time, I had paid better attention when shifting and such. Then after this third time. I don't know. The general consensus I've gotten from people, is that their neutral safety switches are just a cheaply made part or perhaps a bad design. I'm planning on doing it myself this time around. They list at the dealer for 9$ and some change when I asked a little over a year ago. I don't know if that's still accurate. But it does seem to be a common problem.

wow.. Thanks for the info. Doesn't sound promising for the future. I also noticed sometimes i can put the bike in neutral and the neutral light doesn't come on.Probably due to the bad safety switch. It also doesn't start in this condition without the clutch pulled in.

I also had a problem with the N Light not coming on. Had to play with the pedal to get it to turn on. Dealer replaced the Switch. 2nd time back, Had to remove the Spring and clean out the hole. There is a grounding Pin that was sticking

Cappy1966. Yeah, everytime mine busted, it was the same. If you play with it a hair you can get the light to come on. And it will start in neutral sans clutch because it's telling the computer you are in neutral. But when this happens, you will start to get the leak. (Because the neutral safety switch housing cracks, which relieves pressure on the o ring that seals the shift linkage rod running through the casing) It's not a huge one, and if your a conscious about everything, it's not unrideable. Just keep an eye on the oil level. (At least till you can get it fixed.) Also motor and tranny both take from the same oil resevoir. It doesnt have separate transmission fluid. So you get too low and it could damage one or the other. And if the leak is severe, oil could get on the rear tire causing issue. Mine has never been that bad. Use your own judgement. And wipe off the housing before you ride it. Don't get me wrong. I love my bike, they are quick, mean, very underestimated little machines. Being a car mechanic, i understand all vehicles have their quirks, or badly designed parts. So as I said before, the part itself was around 9$ and the job quote I got (mind you this was over a year ago. And I live in nh-so no sales tax) was 90-100$ So I'll keep on fixing mine for now. It could be a lot worse. Like that fuel pump issue a lot of us went through. Haha. That was a scary ride.
