    Is it normal for the Eldorado's to leak a bit of oil? Brand new bike. Leaking a couple drops per day, not bad, but concerning.

    No it shouldn't leak. Clean the area completely with de-greaser then try to locate the source, the wind has blown it all over the place. check the sump drain bolt.

    If you have a 5mm allen key socket ( preferably a long one and a balled end also ) you'll probably find
    as I did that the sump bolts will all be a bit loose , you may wish to do the same with the front engine
    cover that started sweating oil about a week after the sump did . 8000km later not another drop of oil
    or even weeping near the gasket surfaces . Peter
