    Oil leak

    So just had a week blasting around northern France and was disappointed to find an oil leak/mist around the sump area on the left hand side...I understand there was a recall on some 2015 R1s due to a factory error to do with the oil pressure switch? Anybody else had any issues??

    As far as I canm remember this is the first time this has been mentioned here.

    Never heard of any MT oil leaks issues. Any speed bump scraping or bashing of engine casings. Insufficiently tightened oil filter?

    Try or get the tightening of the oil filter cartridge checked.

    Oil filter is sound, and no contact with the cases, bike currently has 1300 miles of crud on it so it's difficult to pinpoint at the moment

    ^ Pinpointing could be keyword for small pin hole. Sounds like you have not lost too much oil.

    Nothing noticeable X Plane, a little oil seams to go a long way!

    Seems worth good cleaning and then checking around the oil cooler and it's hoses and connections.

    Agreed, it's got to be something obvious, just got a bit of head scratching going on at the mo...
