    Oil leaks?

    bike has only done 5km (from dealer to home)...

    seems to be some seepage of oil from a few places around the motor... not dripping yet. (cam cover on RHS, and around bottom of motor)
    Should I be worried? anyone else seen this on theirs yet?

    going back to dealer to get the main seat bolts they forgot to put back in (great pre-delivery...), and a few other things.. see what they say...

    tbh, i expected Honda motor to keep the dinosaur juice on the inside

    (edit: will take some pics tomorrow)

    OOOO!
    A bit of 'misting' wher the odd gasket has failed to seal can happen obviously.
    Wouldn't have expected this with a brand new motor though?
    Good luck with your dealer, keep us plsted please.

    Leaking is very strange. Mine is dry and consumed half a liter on 7400km. Hope you find the solution.

    Check the oil level, maybe the level is too high?

    Yes, not sure it the ‘18 has a sight glass or not. If it’s a dip stick check the manual to see it if the level is checked screwed in or not. My Blackbird is that way .

    does have a sight glass thankfully.
    checked level as per owners manual, seemed ok.

    cleaned up all the joins between parts before ride today and... seems dry now
    maybe some assembly lube dribbling down initially?

    but yeah, happy no drips or pools after 200km today bike is filthy though

    Sounds still strange to me. Motor is not dry, bolds on seat are lacking and dealer has the same with another CB. Was there a problem during the shipping?

    i can't see any damage, and dash had 1.9km on the odometer when i picked it up.

    does sound very strange though doesn't it? maybe a couple of the early assembled bikes?
