Oil leak from the left side cover (2007 FS550e)
 
Hi guys!

I went to my garage to test a few graphics I'm doing for my Berg and as soon as I got there, I immediately changed plans. This is what I saw:

Tried to follow it's path in reverse so I could find out where it came from and got more droplets of oil allover:

The oil cap was no dirtier than usual

This is definitely dirtier than usual!

Moving up, there's oil even on the cylinder head...


Then I cleaned as much as I could, started the engine and left it idling for a few minutes looking for leaks. Not a single droplet. It was already hot enough around the engine so I turned it off and let it cool down, while still looking for leaks. And this is what I found:



(Notice the bubbling?)


Took a closer picture:

I guess we are looking at the closing cover (80036010050) completely out it's place. Let me just remind you I'm a complete noob in mechanics but this still looks weird to me.

Closing cover - #10


What in the world has happened here, and how am I supposed to solve this?

Thanks!

I went back there, now that it's completely cold.

The cover was a bit stuck, but I was able to push it inside. But as soon as I let go the cover comes back out as if it had some sort of a spring.

I guess I was really lucky not to get hit by that cover followed by a jet of hot oil on my leg...



Now, for the experts (*cof* Taffy *cof*) what is that cover for? It looks like someone decided to open a window on a wall and then covered it with some cardboard.

That plug (#10 in the picture) covers the end of the cam shaft and on your engine it's mounted backwards!
If you take off the head/valve cover you can see that there is a groove in the hole where the plug goes. The lip on the plug should be mounted in that so that it doesn't come loose. My advice is, buy some new o-rings (#11 in the pic), flip the plug so the lip goes in the groove and mount everything back with some liquid gasket and then your good to go.

You are 100% sure about it? I think that there is some space left to allow the oil to get to the other side of the bearing.
As far as I remember mine cap is mounted exactly the same way (using new orings) as on posted picture and it doesn't leak at all ;)

Looking at the manual, I wouldn't say it's mounted backwards either...

ghost is right, trust him

@toivias, where is that pic from? Share a link please?

It is a printscreen from workshop manual for 2004 husaberg 650.
