    Oil leaking from chromium cap in top left side of engine?

    In this area (red circle) I see some oil (or other liquid) marks. Question: what is covered under chromium cap? Might be some liquid leaking from this place? What it is, as I do not find any info in service manual?

    2.5 oil change

    I just did the 600 mile oil change and thought I'd share a few thoughts for those of you who've never done an oil change on these bikes. The long kickstand on the 2.5 makes a tip over waaay too easy, especially when pulling on a wrench from under the bike. Do something/anything about it...

    Finding Motor Oil

    If you haven't looked lately finding motor oil in becoming much like finding Waldo. I went to 4 different stores (all of them) in my little burg and found zero bottles of Mobil 1, Valvoline and Motul for an upcoming oil change. It wasn't just the R4T oil that wasn't there but a lot of other...

    I've got a 2013 roadster that was originally running 10 W 40 oil castrol I'm now running 10 W 50 oil in the machine and although running well -doesn't seem to have the same grunt as before. Does running at a heavier weight oil do any long-term damage to the engine as I'd like to revert back to...

    Oil leak after service

    Hello all. New member first post. Have a 2020 R3. Noticed the much mentioned oil leak from bolt on top front of engine. The thing is that it only started leaking after my 600 mile service. Oil overfilled?

    2016 Rocket 3 Roadster oil leak ???

    Noticed I've got a bit of a leak happening, I've been looking around for a schematic drawing that might explain what part is leaking so I can start trouble shooting but having no luck. Has anyone dealt with a leak coming from the bolts on the bottom left of the engine above the kick stand?

    Engine oil level

    I find that the method of checking the oil level is not easy. On the motorcycle log, side stand, cold engine, run 1mn30 without accelerating, stop then check 3mn later. Do you control like that? or some other way?

    Oil dumping out of winter/parked bike after cold drop... (?)

    My 2005 Triumph R3 parked since October sort of froze in my garage (I assume) and it pushed about a half guart of oil out of the engine. I haven't gotten into it yet because I have a car engine torn down keeping me from it, but does this sound like maybe water leaked into the bike's oil and...
  18. HELP Again - I need an Oil Pump Chain T1210007 and the lower Sprocket T1210810

    Herman noticed that my 2005 RIII Oil Pump Chain was VERY loose and thinks it and at least the lower sprocket should be replaced as long as the engine front is off. Hermy's says there are none in stock in America so I'm trying to track down new/used replacements. If anyone has one squirrelled...

    Oil pressure gauge.

    I have a new (to me) 2015 R3T. This bike has just over 2000 miles on the odometer. When I start the engine the low oil light stays on for a few seconds, flickers then goes out. I would like to put a oil pressure gauge on the engine. Question: where can I tap in at?
