Oil leak normal?

Recommended Posts

I recently laid my bike down and it laid on it's right side for approx 10 minutes or so. When it was stood back up, it had oil leaking out from somewhere, but only seemed to be a small drip at that time. Now there doesn't seem to be any damage to motor and it is not leaking anymore, I checked the oil level and it was still fine, it fires right up and I let it idle for about 10 minutes and never saw another drop.

Is this normal when the bike lays on it's side too long? If so, any idea where the oil overflowed from?

Thanks

not dipstick, the oil that leaked collected and dripped from factory skid plate area under motor, just wondering if anyone knows if the oil will overflow from anywhere on motor

Maybe just oil that had collected there from a previous

oil change? Maybe it got good and warm, and then just

slowly dripped out when it was on it's side.

Since the level isn't low, and you havn't seen any

leaks after this, it just sounds like it had collected somewhere and finally found a way to exit.
