Uhh..is oil supposed to drip from there?

Recommended Posts

Did an oil change on the 'ol DRZ last weekend and noticed engine oil leaking from the bottom of the stator cover. Call me slow but it just registered with me that oil probably shouldnt be leaking from there. What the heck is going on? :cry:

Clean the area really well and run the bike so you can tell exactly where it is coming from. It could be a loose drain plug and the oil runs to the mag cover, it could be a cracked mag cover, it could be that the plug is loose, show a pic or clean and run so we can be of more help.

My guess is that it runs down the case to the Mag cover while leaning over on the kick stand. Probably loose drain plug or trapped oil from the oil change working it's way out.

Take the skid plate off and clean and inspect.
