So I went for a ride today. I was on the bike for about 20 minutes from a cold start. It's close to 100 degrees ambient here in lower Alabama. I watched the temp climb as I was expecting 240-250 degrees. The it started going up 255-260, 265 before I pulled over. It should be able to handle that temp but, well, something didn't. I have some kind of...looks like a drain or overflow that's leaking oil on the front side of the motor. It's sitting right next to a braded steel line on the bottom front of the motor. I assume the steel line is a oil cooler line but I haven't gotten the fairing off yet. On top of that I'm burning oil from the exhaust. I'm not sure if I hurt the motor or it there's some kind of seal that's failed. The motor sounds fine, but I'm still worried that I killed a ring.
Any idea's on where to start with that...overflow or whatever it is? Not looking forward to going into the motor.
