Hi All,

Thanks for the help so far.

Just got home from work and noticed oil on the foot plate and around the inspection cover, and dripping on the floor.

taking off the inscection cover i see there is a hole?

what should be there?

is it the oil plug as shown here?

I'm no expert on the non-LEADER 125s, but it sure looks like it. I wouldn't ride it until you replace it... it will throw oil all over the place.

agree 100% with SS.

Remember to replace the oil you have lost, get the washer as well as the bolt.

It is a good idea to download the spare parts manual for your scooter. This manual gives exploded views of every section of the scooter, and it is easy to see what goes (or should go) where.

It's not always correct - use as a guide only.
