Oil leak Clutch case anyone?
on: September 22, 2018, 06:38:36 PM
Anyone notice oil around the rubber grommet on the top of the clutch case.

Its a common thing on VFR's apparently, i had a quick look on their forum.

Mine is a 2017, and it just gets a Little oily, with a little wet patch running down the side of the case after 300 or so miles.

Question is, is it worth me popping the case of, put a little gasket sealant on the rubber grommet and trying

Nope, and it's not common on VFRs. Who told you that?

3 bikes does not = common.

However, it does seem as though it has happened before and the fix is quoted in the VFRD link. Best of luck.  :028:
