I did see a wire going up into the sidecase in this are, are there common issues in this area?
crank seal can leak behind flywheel,, will be evidenced by seepage at bottom of left case cover where weep hole exits..

burrpenick Thanks, I DID change the oil and installed a new HONDA brand washer- and cleaned the surface. SO, I will look closely at that before I do any more............

flitecontrol Oil drain bolt washer may be leaking. If the washer surface is uneven or grit is caught between it and the mating surfaces, it can leak. PO let grit get in between the washer and case, pocking the washer. Sanded the washer surface flat, made sure drain hole surface was clean when changing oil, and no more problems.

Or if you just changed oil, there could be a residual drip or two off the rubber splash guard or engine.

burrpenick Re adjusted the rear brake switch, no joy, took the bulb out, put it back and it worked again.........could have been a combo of both actions, but, its working!

Now a small oil leak on the left front of the engine- have not had time to track tack down- looks like the shifter shaft is way back there, so it must be something else. I did see a wire going up into the sidecase in this are, are there common issues in this area?

A quick way to see if the rear switch is the cause, would be to slip the spring off the end of the switch. If the light goes off, there's your problem. To adjust it, put the spring back on and ease off on the tension until the light goes on and off as the pedal is depressed and released.

burrpenick Can someone help me out here on the stuck brake light..........am I correct in thinking that the front master cyl plug ons dont need to be on a specific side?
