    2016 ktm 450 advice

    Hi all, I developed an oil leak by ( bear with me, if I follow my clutch pipe from my clutch lever to where it goes Into engine case by the front sprocket?) There is a triangle plate, this is where the oil leak is coming from. I tightened the bolts and it seems to have stopped the leak but I done this when the bike was dirty mid trip. I'd like to take off the cover and clean it properly. What is behind this cover?

    Would be a good idea to take it off when clean & don't worry nothing will fly out, clean that area & check the gasket....be careful not to over tighten the bolts & strip the threads when you put it back on tho.

    Just don't pull the clutch lever while you got it off otherwise the piston will pop out affraid

    I've found the clutch bleeds great.

    Also found that beer doesn't affect mechanical work Very Happy
