You probably have had a water pump seal failure. Does your oil look foamy in the oil tank?

Sounds about right. Not seen one reported for the X bikes on here yet but I understand that several have been reported for the earlier F650GS single bikes. Have a look on f650.com

Correction here, sorry. Your rear subframe is the TT one

Problem with the XCo steel subframe are the welded-on passenger pegs. They interfere with the rack's lower mounts.

With the seal gone, there is still hardly any risk of water in the oil. Rotax did the engineering properly. One seal for the waterside and another one for the oilside. The room/chamber in between has a hole in the bottom to the outside world

so the oilside seal has gone.

If the oil is really coming from that spillage hole, you're probably right. Normally it's the water seal that goes first, so it might be advisable to change that one also when you're there.

I have recently had the same however I think it was the water side that went. It took me a bit to work out whether it was coolant or oil that had dripped on the ground. seems to have stopped now but the seals are going to get changed any way.
45000ks on the clock.
The older 650s used to do seals after 40-50k

Great to see you made it to/on the road Ed. Keep the dirty side down and keep in touch.
Any updates or shortcomings in the set-up, you got my address Some of the stuff was hardly beyond prototyping.
Ride free mate and enjoy
