Boulevard C50 Oil Leak

I have an oil leak on my C50. It seems to be on the right side and I am suspecting the Chrome Engine Cover. I thought it might be a filter leak or drain plug leak. I changed the oil, re-cleaned everything, put on a new crush washer on the drain plug and there is still a small leak. You can see it on the chrome side cover. I had the clutch replaced last year and thought it might be the cover gasket, but unless I am mistaken, the clutch is serviced from the left side, not the right. Is there any known problems with oil leaking on this motorcycle?

SOURCE: DL650 Oil Leak...what can it be?

this is on the chain side of the bike, isn't it? i hope you always made damned sure your chain wasnt too tight when you adjusted it... i doubt this would be a problem on the wee, but on my gs1150, i had an offset sprocket so the chain would clear the larger gsxr rear tire i had i can't remember which size the tire was(185?), but my front sprocket was offset 3/8. well, the chain was too tight on that bike and the output shaft toasted the bearing, and that made some neat damage to my engine cases, the symptom i got was lots of smoke coming from there, oh that and the oil leak that looked a lot liek what you describe. however, greywolf knows the strom way better than me and his suggestion of the clutch pushrod seal makes sense. on the gs, the clutch is on the opposite side from the sprocket, so it's an impossibility. so check the clutch seal, also check your output bearing seal. dont fret my horror story, as i said, unlikely on a strom, and never happened on a gs1150 either, only happened because: A- too tight a chain B- offset sprocket.

SOURCE: oil leak from the front of the motor

Its funny you should mention this but yes, I had its bigger brother the GS 850 G , same problem, Apparently, in my situation I did the same thing and went to the shop and let those butchers make it worse !!!, the way i found my leak was by washing the motor with a grease and oil cleaner , strayed the whole motor and wash it all off totally, then I turn her on and let her get to operating temp went for a few mile and came back and checked it, for me it was the head gasket   the guys put on and i forced them to do it again,  I found out later that it was common with the suzi's of that model and ended up doing it myself, I used the original gasket and used a compound called gasket goo and it never leaked through out the 8 years i had it . But before you do anything , surly they gave you warrant y on the work so take it back and demand they do it properly.
Cheers and ride safe

Oil leaking from my 1994 Vanden Plas where engine attaches to exhaust

I can make a couple of suggestions here. First for oil to be leaking there must be a leak from a bad gasket...either from the head, (hope not) or head cover gasket....easy fix. It may be as easy as tightening down the covers. I would change the head cover gasket and make sure it is tightly screwed down.
Second the correct oil is 20w50 and preferably not a synthetic.
You will see an improvement in the oil pressure if you are not using 20w50.

A2005 suzuki boulevard c50. under the seat of the motorcyle on right hand side there is a black box with a lid on top. what is that part for? is it a air filter. some how my cap for the top got lost ...

Can't think of anything on the right side of the bike that fits, the air filter is on the right but it's the large chrome cover below the tank.

Do you mean left side? That would be the tool compartment, it has a black lid and resides behind the side panel which is locked in place with your key. If that's it, the lid is not essential but very handy if you want to carry tools safely (which I highly recommend).

Hope that helps.

How to change oil

First drain the oil from the engine by un-doing the oil drain plug at the bottom of the engines oil pan. Once most of the oil drains replace the oil filter. The oil filter on a Suzuki Boulevard c50 is located just below the gas tank on the right side of the motorcycle. The oil filter is a round assembly that is typically black or chrome and can be removed using an oil filter wrench. Put a bit of oil around the gasket on the new filter and screw it on tightly by hand. Put in the drain plug and fill the engine up with oil (check the oil level glass window with the bike in an upright position to make sure you have enough oil in the engine block)

Looking for oil dipstick on 2005 suzuki boulevard c-50 how to do oil change?

Sorry, no dipstick; the oil level is checked at a sight window low on the right side of the engine. This is best done with an inspection mirror, as the bike must be held level to read accurately. Side note: when changing the oil filter, make sure that the rubber gasket of the old filter does not stick to the bike- some have failed to notice this, causing a total loss of engine oil while the bike is running!
