hello everyone!

i got my eye on a triple r with 25000kms on the clock, however there is an oil leakage in the red circle in the picture.
i have no idea what this part even is and its hard to check since it has those protective covers on. the local mechanic said that this is nothing, just an o ring replacement. is this true or is it a scam?

thank you in advance for your time and advice.

Most of the 675 engine bikes and a lot of triumphs in general seem to leave the factory with less than fully torqued engine cover bolts, they may just need nipping up or at worst a new gasket.
will the owner not allow you to remove a couple of screws to take a look under the engine protection, to make sure it hasn't been down on its side and the cases are damaged.

i'm thinking about asking him before the buy to give the bike to the mechanic in order to repair that leakage and make sure that its not something worse. is this something normal to ask?
