I seem to be geting a couple of drips running down off the end of oil filter after every time i go for ride . I suspect it coming from the oil line fitting above oil filter . Any ideas how to fix?

inspect the entire lenght of our oil line.check for oil residue in the sheath material(sign of pending oil failure),also make sure of the o-ring ,retainer clip and proper fitment and ingregrity at the oil filter housing.

similar symptoms appeared for me about 500 miles before my last scheduled oil change. It turned out to be that some random piece of road debris had damaged the oil filter and the filter was actually leaking.

A overtightened oil filter will also leak.

ive seen oil lines go hard with time and heat.they then become fragile and will crack when disturbed.you can get a better quality hose made at a hose doctor which will last longer than the crappy stuff found on our bikes.
