Help Fast

I had an oil leak on my 2011 990 adventure.

Anyways it was the gear indicator thing that i was told. i dont see any oring in there at all yet thats what was recomended. Where is the oring supposed to go in there?

Never seen it before no prior knowledge,, but I would guess the O-ring would go around the black part and fit into the chamfer around the hole the thing goes into.. Doesn't it have a retainer that bolts over the top? I'd expect a fairly thin o-ring with no groove.

Hopefully a well informed person will be of real help! :)

Here you go!

Check your parts manual for parts you are not sure about. They show how things go together and every part on the bike.

Well i found the old o ring and reused it...cleaned up the mating surface and the o ring so we will see if it works.

I saw nothing wrong with the o ring so we shall see.

Unfortunately, that's how it usually is- it just takes a bit of a square shape or something, and leaks just a bit. At least now you know how easy it is to replace.

In past experience, if a O-ring has begun leaking, it will continue to do so because it is most likely permanently compressed. I have solved this issue previously with a light application of sealant grey silicone (yamabond) to the O-ring sealing surfaces, light application of sealant to the body of the switch body, then reassemble.

So senior snips, did you reuse the old "o" ring? What were the results? I'm experiencing a similar situation, though mainly leaks a little when bike is on it's side stand, typically overnight. Haven't really found it leaking when on the center stand... Maybe a silly question, did you lay it on the side to prevent oil from spilling out or is there little worry about that possibility unless the engine is running?

Thanks...

I just changed the oil when I did it. I cleaned the o ring and mating surfaces and reused the same on. Still no leak. It's probably best to use a new I ring but I used what I had and it worked.
