2007 640 Adv Oil level Inspection Glass
« on: October 04, 2013, 04:53:36 pm »
It seems that oil is leaking from the oil level inspection glass cover (on the RIGHT hand side in the clutch cover) of my bike. Does anyone know how to repair/replace this if at all possible? Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks.

They are available as a separate item from KTM , remove cover , pry out old sightglass and in with new , I generally use a bit of Loctite 599 Ultra grey on the sealing surface .

If the glass is leaking past the seal, surely you could just pop it out and reseal it as advised above?  Glass is usually either fine or broken:)

Cheers

Usually the rubbers go hard and brittle , so sealing is only a temporary fix at best .
