Last night I was riding and all of a sudden my back tire slid it was coated with oil the oil light came on so I pulled over and my bike poured out oil I think the people I had work on my bike didn't tighten the bolt . So long story short was is this hose and how do I get it back in ?

I鈥檇 get your manual out for this one Im sure on my 98 model that is a long coolant pipe with another o ring on the end which slots into the pump inside your engine your coolant is inside your engine and your oil came out the front and down on your tyre id be hunting for blood who ever did the work

I鈥檇 be draining rest of coolant if there鈥檚 any left there is a bolt on the bottom of that pipe just out of view in your pic that鈥檚 the drain point then the oil and filter off,sump off see if the end of pipe still has o ring on it if not it鈥檚 probably been chewed up in your oil mix ouch pull that pipe fully out replace orings and reseat it with the bolt.sump back on cheap filter on and cheap oil as your gona drain and replace it again after a quick start to flush rest of coolant out of all the orifices drop oil filter again then put decent oil and filter on with some coolant and keep ya fingers crossed she鈥檚 ok
