Guys, The oil line that runs to the Right lower side of the engine has a barb fitting on it. As I was dissassembling the bike tonight I moved that line and the fitting just fell right out of the right side case cover. I noticed it had been leaking a little oil this summer. Is this piece just pressed in?

If this piece is loose enough to fall out of cavity, what needs replaced?

I bought a new fitting from my local dealer 4yrs ago and have had no issues since then. I used a wooden dowel and ball peen hammer to set the fitting.
