Default oil seep around primary drive cover

I noticed an oil seep on my 12 CCT. Its on the top of the black housing around the primary drive cover. Anyone else experience this on a new bike. I have only 4900 miles on it. It's not leaking persay just moist on the black portion of the housing.

No issues with my XC in that location. Have your mechanic check it out when you take it in for your 5K service.

My 2011 XR has a little seep there also. I think it's coming from the rubber grommet where the primary cover and crankcase come together at the front. The bike has 8500 miles on it and I first noticed it at 2000 miles. I would keep an eye on it, but personally, I'm not too concerned about it. If it's the same as mine, it's a very slight seep.

Totally agree. This would tick me off a little but probably not a big deal.
Let your dealer check it out as soon as you can.
If this was an HD Ultra Classic this thread would have 15 pages of what a piece of junk HDs are.

Default oilseep

Have 2400 miles and just noticed the same seep at that location on my 12 XCT. Thats Victory trying to be like HD. My only problem is where do you find a dealer that knows anything. Just lip from Victory or should I say ictory.

Freaked me out when I 1st noticed that on my 09 Pin, its totally normal and it will stop. Mine is nearly done with that. I believe Ma Vic uses a bit of grease of the mating surface and that is what you see.

didnt have a prob till the compensator change. then it ran out .
down at dealer again . probably a defective gasket. it was running
down the side cover down the kickstand and blowing back on the
l sidecover. i was wiping every mile or so. over the weekend,
didnt mean i couldnt ride.put over 400 miles on it. so in a nutshell,
it shouldnt do that.--irv

I've got the same seep between the top of the chrome primary cover and and the black engine case, 2,500 miles. I thought that I had gotten over zealous with detail spray, guess not. - Mike

So you stopped every mile and wiped down the bike for 400 miles? Dood, you got one strong arm!
