848 Leaking Oil on Side Stand

This is my first Ducati. A 2008 848. I just saw that oil is leaking from my side stand mount. Is this an easy dealership repair? Any help would be awesome. Thanks!

Oh my.. I hope I'm wrong but I believe our 848s have the stand mounted to the engine oil casing! It that's the case it's not an easy fix, unless you can weld the crack

848 Leaking Oil on Side Stand

Can you post a picture?
A lot of riders like to use the side stand to turn the bike around, it's ok to do that on Japanese bikes because is attach to the frame not to the motor like the ducati

Did not see any cracks. Looks like it's a loose bolt.

Over zealous chain lubing?
Dodgy countershaft seal?
Leaking clutch slave?

I did. It's coming from the side stand bolt that screws into the crank case.

Ok. Crap! It's a crack. Looks like it can be welded and fixed. Anyone ever had this done with any success?

Do you spin the bike in its side stand?

No. I bought this bike a week ago for what I thought was a good deal. Runs great except for the oil issue. If I can get it welded, then I will feel better. Going to the Ducati dealership to see if they can weld her up.

I doubt the dealer can weld it and or would be expensive. Try a muffler shop?

The dealer is going to try to replace the crank case, and I think they need to drop the engine to do this so the labor is a couple of thousand dollars alone... This happened to my friend about a year ago, let me talk to him and ask him what he did! He did used his side stand to flip the bike all the time, he did it for over 3 years. PM me if you want to know the details of how he fixed it

Great news! My dealer can weld the issue. Total cost $150. I am stoked! I have a great dealer.
