    2019 Odes Ravager 1000

    I just bought a 2019 Odes Ravager 1000 with less than 300 miles. Oil was leaking from the oil filter housing. I had the shop replace the filter with an OEM and new o ring. It still leaks. Is there a tightening procedure on the bolts holding the cap on? Right now I'm afraid to use the machine.

    Makes sure that all the surfaces are cleaned. Sometimes they put a sealant on the two mating surfaces and if you don't get all of it off it could cause a small leak

    2019 Odes Ravager 1000

    Of course, after I bought the machine is when I noticed the oil leak. The guys in the shop that worked on it for me told me that it had a sealant of some kind on it, apparently from the factory. That surprised me. It seems like if the parts meshed properly there wouldn't be a need for a sealant.

    Thank you for your reply. I'll probably get into myself the next time. I will make sure all surfaces are clean
