    warning to all, screw came loose and oil eveywhere

    i was riding along normally when my oil message came on. i stopped immediately and took my seat off. what a mess! oil everywhere. got towed home and took a look around. this is what i found.
    it sprays directly what is in the crank. thankfully there was still oil in the base

    make sure to clean the oil off and let it dry befor you run it. loctite mixed with oil doesnt work very good.

    It shouldn't have been able to come out. Don't torque it over 160 lbf -in
    You want to be able to remove it, If you ever have to lock your crank.

    Seeing all your oil in the bottom of Hull would not be good feeling.

    Don't torque to 160 ft lbs, that is too high ... don't have my manual with me right now, but it might be 160 inch lbs maybe ... verify the torque needed.

    Yes, inch. I can't find torque of that plug screw but the manual says 159 lbf-in (18 N-M) for chain tensioner plug which should be similar.
