Oil stains after the 12k service
last month I had the 12k service done at the local BMW dealer, all went ok and they also fixed a problem with one of the plug wires, now the bikes runs smoother and cleaner.
Since then, I saw a small oil stain under the engine on the garage floor. I have a fixed position for the bike (between the two cars) so it's definitely the bike to cause the stain, nothing else. I left the bike stopped there for the past two weeks, after using it for three weeks every day right after the service... not sure when the stain developped but I assume it's in the last two weeks or I would have noticed it before.
For sure the stain was not there before the service...
They changed the oil and the also the gasket, is it normal to have a small leakage or should I return the bike to the dealer?
