Just bought 2013 650 ABS Adventure from dealer - leaking oil?
Hello all! I just bought a 2013 V-Strom 650 ABS Adventure from MotoCorsa in Portland. Less than 4,000 miles so was in great shape. Rode it home to Spokane (great ride btw!), parked in the garage. Next morning I notice some leaks on the floor - smells and feels like engine oil. Engine oil gauge shows just under full oil.
I'm kind of a newbie rider, and not a gearhead, so I'm not really sure if the leaking could be because it just got serviced before the sale, or if it's a problem.
I attached some pics - I can't really tell where the oil's coming from, but it seems to be traveling down both sides of the rear shaft and dripping off the bolt area. As well as a spot underneath the middle of the bike.
Interesting enough, possibly related, I'm experiencing the weird "buzzing" or "crackling" noise on throttle. It won't let me post a link as a newbie but search the thread "odd buzzing under throttle load."
I have an email into the dealer but thought I'd check the vast knowledge here too. Thanks for any insight!
