Oil leak Bad / Warranty Good TE610ie

Recommended Posts

The bad news with only a few thousand kms on the clock, there was a little oil leak out of the tappet cover. Both at the back of the head and also near the spark plug. Just enough to attract the dirt and look a little bit wet/greasy.

Apparently it is not a gasket, but sort of silastic glue they use in this location. Anyway, the bike is only 10 months old and the dealer is fixing it all under warranty with no questions asked. I didn't even buy it through him. Should have it back within a week or so.

I have not heard of this problem with any other bikes, or on the forums, so I guess I'm unlucky. Was certainly nice to just drop it off & not have to worry about paying anything. :p

(I had the same problem with a 6 cyl new Ford car once, what is my problem???? )

My SM 610 is weeping in front of the spark plug hole and it goes down over the right front head bolt and into the boot area. My dealer is 3 hours away, I guess I will fix it myself.
