Common Areas for Oil Leak?

Recommended Posts

Newbie here. I've just recently noticed what I believe to be a small leak on my 2001 DRZ400S w/6500mi. but didn't pursue further where it may be from. I never get the bike off-road much (why do I own it, you might ask) so it's likely not a puncture.

Before I get off my butt and thoroughly check it out, any areas that typically will leak before all others?

Oil travels greatly on a bike,, wind, vibration ect ect.. It could be from anywhere.. Clean well first,, then look for the leak. Check the frame drain plug, crankcase drain, oil filter housing.. and the area behind the countershaft sprocket. If it's leaking,, most likely from one of these places.
