Default Another Oil Change Question...

All,

I'm riding a 2006 Victory Vegas and have a stupid newbie oil change question.

Last season, I had my tires replaced and, since I had an oil change kit (Vic brand), had the mechanic change the oil while he was doing the tires. This was the second change - I had it changed after purchase at the dealer (had a bunch of problems out of my skill range when I bought it) with no issues. Since the second change, it's been leaking oil.

I bought another Vic brand kit and am going to change the oil this week. I haven't been able to identify a reason for the leak thus far, but after looking in the kit, notice a bag with a few different gaskets, which I presume are for the drain plug (please correct me if I'm wrong). I am wondering if the guy I took my bike to either used the wrong gasket or forgot to replace it entirely and was wondering if, in your collective wisdom, you could let me know which gasket goes with my bike... is it the one that fits or seems to fit? I'll probably have a better idea of if he even used a gasket when I change the oil.

Thanks for humoring a Victory newb.

Default Oil leak

Hopes this helps. The 2008 and up engines use a copper sealing washer on the Oil drain plug.
The oil change kit(s) include 3 different oil drain seals. Depending on your kit you should have 4.5 or 6 quarts of oil and 2 or 3 seals.

The Freedom 106 engine uses a copper sealing washer P/N 5812232

Most likely the mechanic that changed didn't see the old washer when he drained your oil, so he didn't replace it.

Yes it can only be 2 reasons your bike leaks from the drainplug

1 the washer is faulty
2 your bike has a faulty magnetic drainplug

Surly it is a easy fix for you.

Let us know how it went?

Did the oil change, replaced the washer with the only one in the kit that fit. Still have a slow leak.

Time for a new plug, maybe?

Clean the engine and find out where it's leaking from.
That's the first thing to do.
You are all guessing....
Find the leak and you're on the way to fixing it....

PS hoping you didn't crank on your drainplug with a torquewrench.... Tight is tight.

Was it a magnetic drain plug? I read some people have leaks from them....

Andre, we don't know for sure it's from that area
The OP hasn't specified where exactly it's leaking and till its washed down and run to find the leak we don't know.
Dusting with baby powder and running will soon show where this baby's weeping from.

True, if in the first post or even today a picture of the leak we could have seen and helped...
