Weird oil leak - 12 R1200RT
Checked the sight glass today and noticed there was lots of oily dirt stuck all over and around it. On closer inspection it looks like the oil is leaking from around the sight glass. I am used to seeing leaking seals around moving parts, but this one is just a plug in the block. I know it wasn?t leaking before so it just started around 8500 miles on my ?12 R1200RT. Time for a warranty repair.
Repair is done under warranty, but not all was covered
Last word from me on this: I had the repair done today, but I had to pay for the replacement oil necessary to perform the repair. That seemed odd to me as they had never asked for this before on other warranty repairs.
I started a new thread under the Motorrad area of the forum if you are interested in the rest of the story on this...
