oil pressure sending unit slow leak

So on my K2, I have a slow oil leak that appears to be coming from the oil pressure sending unit:

2002 Suzuki V-Strom 1000 DL1000 Parts, 2002 Suzuki V-Strom 1000 DL1000 OEM Parts - BikeBandit.com

part #25

Stupid question - is there an Oring on this guy? a gasket? pipe/tubing thread? RTV? Anybody care to share? The unit itself seems OK, just need to stop the harley imitation, as it's making my feelings sad.

There is no O-ring or gasket on the fiche. It's probably a tapered pipe thread. I'd try taking it off and adding Teflon tape or pipe dope.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s

just confirming, no O ring. I pulled it, added some teflon tape, popped it right back in. It was full of oil under the boot/cover, so I feel pretty good that was the source of the leak.
