    Posted: 18 May 2018 at 15:48
just fired up the rsv all working well but im leaking oil from the cam sensor bolt. Oil level is correct, ive taken it off and re seated it but still leaking quite a lot a good trickle . Any advice ? I had to replace the bolt would this make it leak? Can I use sealant ?


I started out with nothing and I've still got most of it left

I dont have any o ring where does it sit? The original bolt disappeared never to be seen again stripped the cave looking for it to no avail.

i don't remember seeing an o ring there when i fitted the STATOR seems odd . Do you think a little smear of 3 bond would be ok? Got the mot Monday and working till then so no chance to get one ordered in time.

just had another look at the parts diagram and you are bang on Colin cant believe I've missed it but I dont understand how ive lost that and the bolt everything was in takeaway tubs all labled up and i definitely dont remember seeing it but it must of been there. Whst size o rings have you tried mate if i order some tonight i might be able to get one in time. One thing after another really thought id finally got it ready to ride again gutted to say the leastCry
