this morning i found some kind of liquid in my garage and in the bottom of my fairing. I took off the right fairing and the liquid is coming out of a 17mm bolt. i tightened it, but was wondering what fluid came out. any ideas would be appreciated

Well, the only fluids in the bike are coolant, oil, and brake fluid. What was the consistency, color, smell of the fluid. Be more specific about the bolt location.

Hmm ...a 17mm bolt? Isn't that the size of the engine oil pan drain plug/bolt? ...My guess is yes and thus you'd be leaking OIL!
My '01 has a 21.ft-lb. torque spec. so I'd imagine the '03 would be close if not the same. [8D]

How many miles are on the bike? Newer oil is not very dark.

Again, be more specific as to the location of the bolt. Where on the right side? Help us out so we can help you. :)

Oh oh soooooo close... ;)
Thanks Rob, I was waiting for someone with better knowledge of the '03 to clarify that. [:M88]
