1st leak

Well, looks like with 450 miles on her I have my first leak. Looks like i'm leaking at the top of the Oil Strainer Nut just below the frame oil drain bolt. Anyone else had this on an XR650L. Should I just tighten it up? Is there a washer or somthing that might be bad? The bike was not leaking a drop until today and I've never even touched the oil strainer nut??????? Interesting??? Any thoughts?

Remove it, clean the screen, possibly replace the O-ring. Assuming it has an O-ring like the 650r.

DN: If you don't have a Honda Service manual...get one....You want a solid info source for working on your L.

(I have an extra manual for an 05 if you need one) :cry:

I just checked my Clymer manual and the strainer nut does have an O-ring. If its loose, try snugging it up to see it that stops the leak. If it doesnt, you'll have to drain the oil and replace the O-ring.

If you still have that manual I am interested, I have an 04 XR L.

Thanks for looking out for your fellow red riders!
