Changed oil and filter today there was no gasket on the drain bolt. Checked engine side thinking maybe it was just stuck to the motor but it wasnt. Didnt leak owners manual does show a gasket???? Not a big fan of the thorx drain bolt either wish they would have just used a regular bolt. Anyone one else had this happen to them? Going to make a run to the dealer to fine out whats going on

hmmm.. I just changed my oil and there was an aluminum gasket (which I replaced with a new one of course).. On my U.S. bike the drain plug was a 12mm bolt not a torx.. what country was this bike purchased in ?

other side

The oil drain plug is on the left side of the crank case. The plug you pulled is for something else and sits higher. You didn't quite let all of the oil out.

Well yes I screwed up. Pulled the right side plastic cover off like the owners manual says to. Looked under the motor and it was right there coming strait off the bottom of the oil pan. Didnt see the other one as the exhaust pipe was in the way. Guess I learned that one the hard way. Wonder why the other plug is even there and it still seems like there would be a gasket on it. Oh well all is good and im back on the road
