    Check the fiche for your year and model.

        Yeah, I would think it would either be that, or the line itself. The lines may just need to be replaced.

            When you pull it apart, check the hoses and what not. See how they are holding up. It is still not to old, so I guess I would imagine they would be in good condition still. Oil line is cheap if it needs to be replaced.

                  The copper "crush" gaskets can be
                  resurfaced. Use a file or sand paper to get rid of the "ring" cut in by the fitting.
                  Touch up with scotch brite and there you are..
                  This is only in a pinch mind you.. they are cheap enough to get extras when you need them..

                    So I have the same problem with my bike I presume because I cleaned everything and it's leaking from that right oil line bolt. Can you buy these copper rings at any store or should I go to an automotive store?
