My Daytona has an oil leak coming from wiring that goes into the right hand cover. i think I have lost positive crankcase ventilation. The oil is being pumped out while the engine is running. It just started 2days ago. Any help with this would be appreciated, Ed

Ed, You maybe able to use a non hardening sealant. Depending on how much oil is in the sump you maybe able to remove the side cover without having to drain any using the sidestand.

Brad, I am going to use Permatex ultra black. I have noticed that the oil in the sight glass when on the kickstand is at the bottom.
Thank You Sir. Ed

DEcosse,I just checked the oil level it is about 1/8" below the top notch or line
I just looked closely at the site glass and the oil that I see is about 1/8" up on the glass its self and not actualy filling the area when its on the kickstand. :eek:

Ed, I'll check in the AM and report (on paddock stand and locked for the night), but I don't think that I have any oil in the sight glass when on the sidestand.
