I just bought my Tiger last week. At 400 miles the two 8mm threaded plugs on the lower right side of the engine are weeping/seeping oil. I didn't see a reference to these plugs in the fastener list. Do these bottom out against something when tightened or is the thread a pipe thread that tightens a few turns in a bottomless hole? I want to seal them with teflon tape but don't want to risk stripping them.

Thanks.

Maybe this is unrelated to your problem, but it looks suspiciously familiar - I too had an oil weep from apparently a 8mm allen key plug at the lower right hand side of the engine, not long after purchasing the bike. I returned the bike to my Triumph dealer for its first service, and the weep was identified as coming from the starter motor cover, just above the plug. The black finish of the motor fooled me into thinking it was the plug itself leaking; it was migrating down from above. A new gasket solved the problem. Perhaps it's worth a look?

Thanks for the reply. I read through many, many posts on the subject last night so I got down against it with a good flashlight and had a really good look to see if oil possibly was coming from further up above the hex head fittings as from one of the two covers on the right side (one is the starter motor - not sure what the other one is). Since the bike is so new and I rode it 365 miles the day before the oil weeps left good tracks from the road dust attracted to them. The covers are not weeping oil - at least not yet - but the allen head plugs are.

The plugs leaking is quite common - your dealer will just wrap the threads in ptfe tape. Dunno what torque settings though, sorry!

Just thought I'd add - OEM engine bars - main nuts (3 per side) torque is 20 Nm - not on the main list coz it only covers stock parts.  :028:
