oil and cold weather.... - December 22, 2008, 10:36 AM

yo my bike has never dripped a drop of oil...regardless of what is wrong with it....

so I don't run it at all this weekend...go out to it this morning...fire her up...go inside to gear up and let her warm up...come out...and there is a drip or 2....looked up in her and can see the oil accumulating around a banjo bolt....and down a short rubber hose.

does the / can the cold do that?....have any effect on oil?

OH NOES....is REPSOL not cold worthy? lol

the dripping stopped of course once i got moving. I stopped for gas right near my house this morning and there was no more drips.

the drippings in this thread are no way related to the ghonorrea storysunfolding would rather have in his other thread lol

The viscosity of oil is more dense in cold weather. Did you by change do an oil change to your motorcycle recently? If you over filled the oil resevoir, you may have caused a problem. It can cause oil leaks by causing blow by on the pistons, hence an oil leak. Let us in on all of the other details.


R.I.P. Eric. You were truly like a younger brother to me. May you live on in all those you helped and reached out to help. You are truly missed!

tfinch: Bubbles! Yes! Gurgly bubbles!

Just a loose bolt, tighten her up and wipe her off and you will be fine. Cold weather causes metal shrinkage and heat expands (why it stopped dripping most likely).
