I recently discovered a very small oil leak. It actually took until now for it to show up. I have had my 109R since May. The dealer is telling me it's in the Seconday drive gear assembly. An "O" ring with a nick in it.
I don't know exactly which one it is yet, but here is a link:

There are 4 different ones. The part will be delivered and installed tomorrow. This is probably a one in a million problem, but I thought I would let you guys know.

*** If you go to the link above, the part number they are replacing is #19 "O RING, SEC CASE OIL PI".

I got my 109 inApril and looks like I'm having the same problem, took it in in August for repair and I just dropped it off again yesterday. So heads up.

Guys,
Where did this leak seem to be coming from? I'm dropping the M off tomorrow due to a small leak from one the right side engine cover bolts.

Thanks,
Thomas

Follow the supplied link. I was getting a very small leak from the Secondary case bolt. The O ring around it had a nick in it.

2006 also. Just logging in another case. The dealer mumbled something about the secondary drive gear and a seal leaking. This is the second time my bike has been in for the repair.

Suzuki should have put a chain on this bike, i know it don't look as clean but hey.
Dunno, :dontknow: but I don't think it would look as good with a chain. They should've got it right the first time, and they wouldn't have to deal with all these issues. But like any new model they've got to work the "bugs" out of it. Hopefully it wont be to many more. :eek:

rule of thumb, anything over 100 horses should have a chain or at least a belt but hey.

A steel swingarm or swingarm brace to help hold all the power this bike makes shouldn't be that diffiicult, considering the minds that are on this site.

My rear seal blew out completely as I rolled into the dealers lot! Dealer ask me about abuse, then suggested I overloaded, right all 200 lbs of me. Suzuki jumped right in and 100% covered the rear end and are supposed to have my bike done by Weds. They are replacing the entire rear end. You always have some problems with new models and as long as Suzuki stands behind everything... I'm happy. Lost 5 weeks riding time this year but it beats breaking down on a long trip.
