So I just clipped someone with my motorcycle over the weekend and my two right fairings need to be replaced, the battery needs to be replaced, the ignition relay as well, but when I clipped the guy my bike was leaking oil, and I see that there's a line missing but I have no idea what it's called here is a close up picture, and I hope y'all can see a little blck tube that has no line to it, and looks like a line belongs there, any help would be much appreciated guys, thanks in advance.

Ohh I love eye spy! :)

Well… the one thing I do see is the oil pressure sensor has snapped off. Pretty common thing to break in a crash and easy to replace. Thats the little black tube in the upper left part of the picture. I don't really see anything else wrong, the image is too bright where the wires are, can't see if there are any torn wires there.

What about the little tube right under the oil cooler steel braided line?that's the one I was most curious about because it seems all the oil seeped outta there.

Honestly, I don't see anything else wrong. The voltage regulator cable sheath has oil all over it, but that's kinda normal. The valve cover gaskets have a tendency to leak on these engines and it causes oil to spray on everything under there, it's pretty normal.

are you talking about the black tube right under the steel lines connecting to the motor? if so that would be the cover for the positive battery cable that is supposed to go to the starter relay. should not be getting any oil from there. if there really is oil coming from there then you have some serious damage, cases and starter would have to be broken. that tube as you call it is just a rubber protector, it comes right off now that the battery cable is ripped off it. take it off and see what you have. i would say the best thing to now is get a few cans of brake clean and spray everything, clean it up and you will see where the leaks are coming from. you have a mess right now.
