Riding around today, stopped at a light, the bike starts smoking from underneath somewhere. I rush home and find bits of oil dripping onto the exhaust pipe. The starter (I think is its the starter, cylinderical black thing w/what looks like a sparkplug cap) is sprayed w/oil. What do I do? The oil light didn't come on, haven't changed the oil recently, and the oil doesn't look low. The bike should be standing straight up (not on the sidestand) when you're looking at oil in the sight glass, right? Anyway, I'm pissed, just got this bike 300 miles ago and I dunno what to do. Its a 2000 M750 w/6k miles. Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

looks like you're about due for your 6k service. Did the previous owner have it done?

You're right about checking the bike straight up and not on the sidestand.

Not that I know of, going to bring it in for 6k servicing anyway, specially after this oil leak. But oil shouldn't leak from the engine, even if it does need servicing for other stuff, ya know?
