Oil pressure issue?

Post by stephenmark19 » Sun Dec 30, 2018 1:43 am

This is probably a stupid question. Does anybody know if it is a problem for the hose that drains a couple inches to the left of the kickstand leeks a couple drops of oil?
I have a 2017 SDR. There has never been a drop of oil from this hose. Today after a mildly spirited ride I noticed a couple drops under the hose a couple hours after getting off the bike. Thank you so much for your help!
I recently had a full akra exhaust system installed but I have ridden it a couple times since then. Not sure if that helps.

Yes, it was pulled and they did the tune at the dealership.

I removed mine when I had the akra map loaded and I seem to remember a hose coming down the left side near the clutch slave that I removed when the cannister under the seat was taking out. Its been a couple years since but I just looked and I have no hoses coming down anywhere in that area. Can you post a pic ofnthe hose? Maybe they forgot to remove it?

Youtube rottwiler sas ktm and at around 12 minutes in you will see your hose I bet and the dealer has undoubtedly left some of your items on? That comes from the cannister. I used this video in doing mine and it was a piece of cake. Hope this helps.

You are absolutely correct. The canister is still on. I can see the block off plates from where the sas was removed.
Thank you so much for your help!!!!!
