right, so my et2 has been dripping a little bit of oil for about a week, i noticed as my stand had become covered in oil and gunk. so i cleaned it all off so i could try and see where it was coming from. then as my oil light was flashing as i went over bumps i stuck some oil in and the next morning there was oil everywhere. (not the whole amount i put in, but a fair amount)
so i ran the engine for a bit and kept an eye underneath the bike and then it happened again overnight.


thanks!
so the circled bit is where the oil is coming from, it's on the left hand side of the bike, right above the stand. i'm not really sure what this is, i dont think the oil is coming from a leaky tube or anything. has anyone got any ideas as to where the oil

Hi Lorna

Behind the black circular gasket in the top left on your photo is the oil pump, pop the gasket out and have a look inside. This is a sort of "inspection" gasket.

It may be that the oil pipe has come away, or has split.....or that the oil pump belt has come off, or even that the oil pump is "up the shoot".

To get to the oil pump properly though... you may need to remove the drive belt cover.

Is that oil pump belt anything to worry about normally?

on standard bike, not really. on a kitted bike, yes.

either way, take a peek at it. make sure it's not frayed or missing teeth.

Another thing to check:

There is a bleed screw on the oil pump. If it has vibrated loose, oil will be lost. It is also accessible behind the black plug. Phillips head, turn slowly and gently clockwise, being careful not to strip it.
