Hi Travir, Have you checked were the oil leak is coming from?
It may be a straight forward fix if it’s from the sump area, Very common for the sump bolts to work loose,
I agree with Andy. Loose sump bolts are quite common on 1050's. I doubt you have gasket issues.
Torque up all the bolts, wipe it down and monitor.
BTW check the gear linkage bolts while you're at it. They work loose on too many bikes as well.
Just had another thought. Is the sump bolt OK ? It's not hard to overtighten it and crack the sump.
Just wanted to let y'all know you were right about the sump bolts. Almost all of them had worked loose. The oil was actually coming from the right side of the sump and dripping off the oil pan drain bolt. Also have a minor leak around the right side crank shaft cover. . Thanks for the heads up. Niceto know there is a place to get good info when you need it
