Engine oil level glass leaking

Hi, today I found my FE 570 2011 with an small crack on the oil level window, leaking oil.
I have never had a knock on it. It shocked me a lot, and Iīm really dissapointed about it.

I would like to know the reason of cracking this window.

I have cheked on my Engine spare parts manual and it shows that my bike should have a round type oil window, (new part, it comes with *) but it doesnīt, my byke has a long and thin one.

I have cheked others topics here about this issue, but it is not clear to me.
On the model 2009-2010 it should be long and thin window, and 2011-2012 should be round type window, is that right?
But why some people with the 2011 model has the long thin wondow, like mine?

Has anybody experience an oil level window crack before?
How did you fix it?
What can be the cause of the crack?

Iīm thinking on buying a new window an install it, but I will have to open the right crankcase. Doing this on a brand new bike I donīt like it at all...!
Is there anyother way of fix it?

Cheers.

Carlos.

Carlos,
I, too, have a 2011 FE570s. The oil check window on my bike is tall and skinny, like yours. I think the manual you're looking at is simply in error. No leaks here.
Isn't your bike still under warranty?

Re: Engine oil level glass leaking

Hi Ruger,

Has your manual the same error?
Mine, on the page 6 CLUTH COVER, it says part 8* (new part): 78030095000 OIL LEVEL GLASS 30X8.
And you can see on the drawing the "round" type glass.
Then on the page 14 WATER PUMP you can see on the drawing the "long and thin" type.

I donwloaded the 2009 manual from the husaberg web site, and on the page 4 CLUTH COVER, it says 8: 81238084044 OIL LEVEL WINDOW CPL. On the drawing you can see the "long an thin" type, like mine.

About the warranty, I donīt know, I have just emailed the dealer.

Re: Engine oil level glass leaking

Hi Carlos,

This is mighty interesting. On page 79 of the Owner's Manual ("Checking the engine oil level") there is a photo of the right side of the engine, and there plain as day is an oblong oil check window that is much taller than it is wide. But page 6 of the Spare Parts Manual: Engine has the same information your manual has, a round "oil level glass 30x8" and the same part number you've given.

The Owner's Manual favors us with a photo, and it shows the placement of the oil level window on the engine case itself. The Spare Parts manual, however, has a drawing that shows the window on the clutch cover. The Spare Parts Manual is in error, of course. The window is in the engine case, and it seems to be bonded into the case rather than held in place by a circlip as depected by the Spare Parts Manual.

If the window is indeed bonded into the engine case, it may be a very expensive proposition to replace. In that location it is protected by both the clutch cover and the brake lever. The designers may therefore have assumed that it would never be broken and may not have provided for any kind of repair. I'm very interested in what you learn from your dealer.

Does anyone have any wisdom on this subject, please?

Re: Engine oil level glass leaking

Hey Ruger,

As I said before, I donwloaded the 2009 engine spare parts Manual, and you can see very clearly that Husaberg sells the window as a spare part, part 8: 81238084044 OIL LEVEL WINDOW CPL.

I donīt think it will be expensive, but I will ask on Monday.

Iīm guessing that to covered by the warranty the bike should be checked by the dealer, and in my case the dealer is 600 kms away from my house, so I donīt think I will be lucky...!

Re: Engine oil level glass leaking

If the parts manual that came with our 2011 machines is in error, I don't think I'd be willing to take the information from a 2009 manual at face value and would double-check with a dealer.

Re: Engine oil level glass leaking

For Carlos' benefit, would you please post the part number of that oil level window on your 390?

Thanks Ruger, you are right. Wiggy would you please post the part number.

I have told already to the mechanic of my dealer about the problem, looks like it is the first time they hear about this problem.

Tomorrow Monday they will talk to Husaberg Spain to see what they can do...!

I will keep you informed.

Cheers.

Carlos.

All the engine spare parts manuals for the FE 390's show the tall skinny window p/n 81238084044
Had a look at a 450 and 570 engine spare parts manual and it shows the circular window p/n 78030095000
