I'm late to the party in this thread but you need a new dealer. It's never normal for a motor to puke oil. That's absolute bullshit, unless it's overfilled with oil. Then that would make sense.Hi gentlemen. Having the same issue with oil coming out of that hose. Took it into the dealershipand the mechanic told me it was normal with the Diavels. Didn't really give me a reason as to why it happens. Found a new guy in Milton that works on all the Italian bikes that will be checking it out for me but not till April 24th. Hopefully we don't have a serious issue in our hands.
hoping that's my issue, but I do have to say that that is a really really stupid design to dump overflow oil right in front of the rear tire. That airbox vent tube should have a catch can or something if the manufacturer is at all aware of users having oil leak from there.just to mention. When my dealer overfilled on my last service, the excess oil drained out of a tube that sits under the oil cooler. I talked to Ducati and they said that is what is supposed to occur on an overfill.
On a different occasion, I did have the exact same oil spray you showed in your pictures, Todd, and it was a cracked oil blow-by piece that they replaced under warranty. Have not had that happen again....
hope you don't see it again!
^^^^Right you are Battlesnail!I'm late to the party in this thread but you need a new dealer. It's never normal for a motor to puke oil. That's absolute bullshit, unless it's overfilled with oil. Then that would make sense.
My new 1260S Diavel is in the shop now leaking oil from the airbox vent tube and they sent a report to Ducati to start trouble shooting it and are already talking about compression and leak down tests to confirm if there's a blow by issue. Don't let your dealer tell you leaking oil is normal, because it is not.
Hi ToddhollanderI just had my annual service done at the dealer and after a couple of rides 158 miles later I notice I have an oil leak.
Total mileage 5515 miles. It seems to be on the right side of engine. It has splashed up on silver part of swing arm carrier, and
looking further, pics show it coming from somewhere underneath. Is this a simple case of an overfill getting blown out?
If so, is the air filter compromised? Or do I have a real problem? It's Sunday and I will call the dealer tomorrow to see what they say.
Reid, what say you?
Went out and squeezed the rubber breather hose? it is definitely wet inside as well. I think the oil might be coming from there.
The bike is hot now so I can't really check the oil level. When it is upright the oil window is almost completely full, hot.
My wife took the picture as I held the bike straight up, the oil is just below the little hole up top, way above the two level lines on the case. (hot)
