Ok, no need for you. What if someone wants more options?

I just put it out there so people know there are other options besides waiting for something like this.

If you want more options, fill yer boots....

You can search within a thread but as you say, still not easy.

I did post some pics but maybe this one best shows what I did:

I have ordered a bracket from a member on Tiger800.co.uk. There is a thread on GPS mounts on that forum with pics

Oil Leak

I have a minor oil leak and luckily it seems to be coming from this plug instead of a gasket.



The service manual defines these as crankcase seal plugs and to replace with new ones if removed. On my next oil change which is coming up shortly I'm going to remove it and put some sealer on it like Permatex and reinstall. Has anyone else noticed an oil leak here?

Surely you are still in warranty? I wouldn't screw with it for two reasons... one is you are in the warranty period(I'm assuming)... two is that the plug may not be threaded. It does have a recessed-allen head but might it be pressed in?

If you somehow are beyond warranty why not order another plug and then see what you are up against?

The reality is that I'd likely have the same reaction as you if it was happening to mine!

oil plug leak

Did you check to see if it was torqued correctly? The only reason I can see that a plug would be replaced is if they come with a hard sealant already applied from Triumph, or some special design feature that was one-use-only. Personally, first I would use some Blue Hylomar sealant on the old one, unless upon removing it I discovered a feature which truly makes it one use only (perhaps partial threading with some kind of softer insert to provide sealing?). By the way, I found Blue Hylomar at Pep Boys (if it is good enough for Rolls Royce jet engine sealing a little crankcase plug should be no big deal).

Yeah I checked the torque, it didn't budge at even a couple more foot pounds over spec.

I think a thread sealant like this would be better, Hylomar is for gaskets and flanges.

Finally got one. Picked it up today and put it through its paces. Much easier to ride on dirt/gravel than the girlie. No bottoming on landings.

Whatever........I had just wiped the oil off, after a couple hundred miles it is dripping off the engine guard.

Full Monte, if that was a joke, cool...if not, some Heidenau K60's in short order might extend your lifespan...And by the way, some think that the 140 rear is a better choice for off roading, I've tried both, and prefer the 150 for both off and on road use. Ken
