There may be some motorcycle engine oil leaks that are so severe that it requires the replacement of defective parts. This should be relatively easy to undertake when it comes to hoses and connectors. Prior to replacing any connectors that appear to be the cause of the leak, try tightening them in case they are actually leaking because they have come loose. After tightening them, wait a few moments to check whether it continues to leak. If the fasteners or hoses are defective, replace them rather than attempting a repair. Where the problem of leaking oil persists, it may be necessary to remove the engine in order to repair it properly. This is best undertaken by a qualified mechanic.

So keep an eye out for those dreadful oil stains or traces of oil on the engine surface and arrest it before it costs you a sad lot of money.

Happy riding!
