Unhappy Oil leak

Hi, my V Strom 650 L4 has an oil leak from the engine mount on the right side. Have 90,000 km on the clock and it is not convenient to open the engine to repair it. I've already read several discussions, but nobody ever wrote the solution. Has anyone had the same problem and how did he fix it?

I think this is a rare problem and few people have needed to solve it. Have heard of folks living with it as it was a small leak. To confirm the location, is this the on the mount with the long bolt through it between the cylinders. First step for me would be to retorque the bolt.

This seems to be a common problem on the SV, as the frame sliders mount there. I think there is a washer there too. Check svrider.com, should be lots of info there.

Ok thanks you, i try to retorque the bolt, but don't thinks to resolve because there isn't no gasket where the big bolt goes.

I update with advice I think useful for those who have this problem ... Someone with my identical problem, says he has solved the problem of oil leakage, simply by removing the pin, cleaned everything and then reassembled the pin filling with anti-seize grease ( but I think it goes well even with the simple generic grease) the inside of the hole, says that ever since then no more oil losses. This is the simplest solution, the bolt tightening torque is 93 Nm, confirm?

I see 40 ft/lbs (55 Nm) for the 2012 DL650.

It is the upper front bolt, the one behind the coil ... where the original crash bar is usually mounted. I read 93 Nm.

Fine. Select the correct bolt or nut from the torque chart above. You said "engine mount" so that was what I quoted.
