Current ride: XB12S
My XB12S has sprung a bad oil leak from where the cooler return oil line goes into the small 90 degree adapter to the oil filter connector. Looks the same as this guy has posted on youtube:

And his pics are here...

A tighten of the nut on the pipe hasn't helped.
Any advice? A new oil line apparently costs 125quid...

BTW the leak is coming from the below the square 90 degree adapter, so it must be where the oil pipe connects.

i would take it apart to properly asses the damage
as over tightening may have happened before you touched it
