Speaking of the gear selection thingy, that seems to be where mine is leaking from as well. Just lean and support the bike to the right side and replace O ring? Would like to avoid draining all that clean oil I just put in...

TIA

When you do this, take out the Gear Position Sensor, Oil may Drip but not gush out.... you should not have a problem.

Just installed a New GEAR-POSITION SENSOR #60011023100 on the '06 Adventure... the Old One was Leaking Oil out of the potting material and out of the Wires.

The New One has Brass Nurling around the Screw Holes, has better Potting Material, and is made in Japan.

However, it DID NOT COME With an O'Ring...just to let you know.

Looks like there maybe some oil coming from around the rubber seal one the left hand casing, anybody had leakage from here? ps its an old picture its alot cleaner now!
I got a 950SE '06, that is leaking from that spot also. What sensor is it? Problem to replace?

Look at this link in the Engine/Lubrication portion:

See #11 #14 or #12 or 21 which is the O'Ring

From what i can see, I too have the problem with the oil pressure switch, its covered in oil, and leaking all over the place

can the oil leak through the oil pressure switch? or is it just leaking around the switch due to a bad washer?

does any of you have some pictures of the switch from the bottom? Im thinking of just fixing the switch i have now...

One word, you are all awesome! without you my hair would have been grey by now! thanks

I found my Oil Pressure Sensor was leaking through the Plastic where the Wire Sensor connection was attached.... this is most likely your problem too.

Oil pressure sender

Just to add my experience:

My '05 950 Adventure started leaking oil, a little at first, but gradually getting worse. It looked like it was coming from the base gasket of the rear cylinder, but after reading several posts about the oil pressure sender between the cylinders being a likely culprit I stripped the bike down. Although there appeared to be little oil around the sender, it was the highest point where there was any oil. After cleaning everything and replacing the sender unit and the copper crush washer with new items the bike was rebuilt. Result, no further leaks.

The part is less than £7, but you're looking at a good days work to strip and rebuild. I found the fuel lines in the airbox a particular bitch to get back onto the carbs. However, after initially thinking I had a potentially huge bill for an engine rebuild coming, it was a relief to cure the problem with very little expense.

Need some help on this one. '12, leaked since new (my local dealer sucks, I'm on my own) and can't figure out from where. All of the usual culprits have been checked and rechecked, all Orings appear to be in like new condition, and at idle it doesn't leak at all that I can find. Seems like it only happens when I really wring it out at high RPM. Kind of hard to replicate those conditions in the shop. With the wind pushing oil all over it's hard to pinpoint. Should I replace the factory hose clamps with plumbers tape? They all seem tight, but that's all I can think of.

I haven't read all the posts but I have just had an oil leak sorted on a 06 adv: it was the 'clutch pusher seal'.

No, but it doesn't appear to be coming from that high up. I'll pull the airbox and have a look to be sure though...
