Similar happened to me last year,  In my case it was the hose on the near side oil cooler. The clip is one of those "micky mouse " things not a proper jubilee hose clip. It had been assembled on top of  the pipe swage not behind it, and had taken 2500 miles to pop Confused

bloody good job I was in the  garage at home , not blatting down some motorway which could have resulted in a major "off".

so if you have dumped so much oil start looking at the flow and return hoses for the coolers , and then check the oil tank behind the nearside fairing the connection between that and the motor.


Packed in Working, Packed in Biking, The two things that were going to see me off !
