I have noticed a bit of oil that will pool up in the spot marked "B" on the attached picture. I changed the oil and filter and made sure that the rings were all in place. The only think that looked strange was the finish was gone on the BACK side of where I marked "A". You can just see a strip that is about 1/8 of an inch on the back side of the oil filter
cover that you can see bare metal. I did not know if that is what is causing my pooling oil or if it is the line that I maked as "C" in the picture. Did not know if this was a crack or something.
If you have a 09 WR 450R (I guess 07 to 2011 - I think) can you look at your bike and let me know if you see the line next to "C". If you have the line then it has to be the area that the finish has rubbed off.
Thanks for helping out!
