  2. Ciao Guest, ALERT FOR Store purchases - riding season is here, so we know everyone wants it yesterday. However, lead times are long and many things are sold out or back-ordered, and there isn't much we can do to rush anything. Always best to buy off Season when things are in stock.

We do our best to get things out as quickly as possible, and we also aren't in control of things like customs & weather delays, etc. Please note GuzziTech and the GTM Store is largely a ONE man operation.

Oil seepage on left side front

    While doing a little clean up I notice a leak on the left hand side of the motor, to the front of the cylinder. Oil has not dripped enough to reach the ground, so I'm not sure how long its been there. I had one really long hot ride recently, and it wouldn't surprise me if that helped make this happen. This is an '08 Norge 1200 2V

    In any case...thoughts on what it is and how to repair? I plan on taking this bike cross country next year and want to get all of the gremlins out before I go...

    Thanks

    Most likely suspects are the cam position sensor (usually a little RTV on the o-ring cures it) and oil pressure sensor. You will need to get the tupperware out of the way to actually confirm the source.

    If it’s the oil pressure switch, it’ll be a bit of a b*gger to fix in that you need the tank and air box off. It’s not actually tricky just a right royal pain in the unmentionables. It was my first foray into working on my 2007 Norge.

    Before pitching into doing so, it’s worth getting the left hand fairing panel off and taking a peek up under the tank on the left hand side, looking up and towards the underside of the alternator. If it’s the oil pressure switch then shining a torch up there should reveal it.

    There’s a lot of good advice to be had on this forum about how to do it. I found the hardest thing in the end was getting the tank back on (d*mned ethanol!)
