This is my second thread on GSTwin and I just want to thank everyone thus far. I've had my bike just over a month and I love it and the support on this forum is incredible.
Attached are three photos, the first to give a clear shot of exactly what we're looking at, then the second is my issue and the third is the other side. It's what I assume is a gasket on the top of the motor (crank case?). The black cover seems to be missing a bolt in the second picture, the third picture shows the opposite side with the bolt on it. I know this sounds stupid, but can anyone confirm I'm missing a bolt?
I attempted to remove the bolt that I do have (to see what it looks like underneath) but I don't have the right size socket (anyone know the exact size?) and I tried using pliers and channel locks but it was pretty tight and I didn't want to strip it.
After riding it's always a little wet and oily. It's never pouring out or gushing. I'm thinking if I am in fact missing that bolt, when I put a replacement in, my "issue" will go away. I've been checking the oil levels and it's not losing so much that it's noticeable or needs replacing.
Thanks in advance!
