Question for the experts . What is the little triangular area under our bikes across from the oil pan plug ??? And what is it there for ?? Curious. Thanks
Cool. I'm gonna check it out . I noticed that after a long ride I get a very thin film of oil on the pan . It never leaks but it's just annoying and I think it's definitely a high compression thing .I read somewhere that it is a pressure relief valve, I think it was a thread about a coolant leak? Here's a quick pic from a manual I have

No I don't have any issues. Just was wondering what that spot was about.Yours isn't seeping though, right? You were just after knowledge? I'm thinking of ordering o-rings just to have them if mine starts to seep due to age.
