I recently discovered a technique that was new to me for finding the source of an oil leak
. I had used the paper bag in the engine sump to determine that the drip was on the starboard side of my engine, but I still didn't know the source. When scanning a motocycle maintenance
site I saw advice that suggested a puff of talcum powder applied to show the leak.

I didn't hold my camera
at the best angle to see the source, but this track was leading to my oil pressure sensor and an easy fix. Take care and joy, Aythya crew
