oil leak

Hi there,

I'm traveling around oz with my ktm 640 adventure ( already 11000km done ) and I have a few issues with oil leaks, I've already resolved a few but a new one appears last week (see pics below) seems to come from the up, anyone have already something similar ?

Thanks !

When I owned my 640ADV, I had similar oil leaks from "up top" that ended up being cheap and simple camshaft-cap o-rings. I couldn't find them anywhere other than my dealer but once I did get them, they were easy to install. You might have better luck with responses in the "thumpers" section of - they focus on single cylinder bikes and there are a ton of KTM 640 Adventure owners on there.

my old 640 and 625 developed oil leaks from the cam cover. Had to remove and re-seal with goop like yama-bond or honda-bond.
There is a ton of in for on this over in thumpers in the LC4 sub category...
good luck and have fun
