Since your bike is New, Make a Warranty Claim. Show it to your Dealer and see if they have a Replacement, if not ask them if it is OK to Drill it out while you are waiting on a New One.

We're talking about the ADV and SE bikes here. Your SM may be different in this aspect.

OK. I will order another one as I am sure my dealer is clueless and compare. For now, back in goes the old one.

Thanks.

Looked at the fische for your bike and it shows a "30" clutch oil jet:
60038029200 REDUCING JET 30 M6X0.75
Apparently the troll on the assembly line in Mattighofen didn't check the jet before installing it in your engine. Fortunately, they seldom f^$# up more than twice on a single bike.... cough, cough,

thanks--It is the 30 saw the number. The 30 should be drilled--correct?

Correct. The steeler should give you a new one under warranty. I don't need to tell you to look at the replacement carefully. See if you can get "something" extra for your trouble.

The shifting has become notchy--and I just changed the oil to little avail. I may try to press them to inspect clutch maybe?

Easy enough, check the oil jet and flush the system routinely and it'l save you heartache.
Thanks guys. I will work on it this weekend, I will report my findings...

Just did mine. I swear there was no hole drilled in it.
Put the red tube from the WD40 can up to it and tried to blow through it. No luck. Must be plugged or no hole...

Nah, I'm just retarded. Soaked it in some brake cleaner and SHAZAM! It's all clear now. Now I get a nice spray jet of WD40 through it.

Slow speed shifting seems less notchy...

Maybe I missed it but it's worth repeating. I'm a big fan of the shopvac crevice tool removal technique. Maybe it's not the most efficient but it's still fun.

I used a small bolt with a little glob of that sticky picture-hanging putty to stick it and pull it out.
