1260 Burnt Oil Smell But No Visible Leak

Discussion in 'Multistrada' started by Pat Mills, Sep 16, 2020.

  1. When out and about I occasionally get a whiff of what smells like burnt oil; almost like there is a drip of oil dropping on either a hot part of the engine or exhaust.

    There is no evidence of using a oil (i.e. having to top up) nor is there any oil dripping on the floor when bike parked up.

    anyone had a similar issue on 1260s?

    what was the issue/fix?
  2. Mileage on your bike?
  3. 7600
  4. May be worth checking that the Oil Filter is tight, I had one that leaked a few drops (saw a little oil in the belly pan) and just a nip up of the filter stopped the leak.
