Default 03 DS650 Bombardier

Last week we bought an 03 ds650 and after riding it a couple days and my husband cleaned it really good, it started leaking oil. My husband noticed that the oil filter cover cracked, so we replaced it last night and this morning started it up and hit the gas a little and with out even riding it the cover cracked and busted again, is this a known problem, or does anyone know what can be causing this?

Have owned nine of them and never had that happen. Never even heard of it. No pump, it's just kind of slinging oil going on in there so there shouldn't be any pressure build up. Look at the sticky threads and see which years had the different size oil filter covers. I think you're using the short cover with the long filter but it still wouldn't seem to me that you could even get that bolted down (haven't tried!) in order for it to break the cover. Good luck anyway, these are awesome rides so hopefully you get it sorted out.

brotha I wish I got it figured out my wife posted it but it broke outta no where and continues to break after warming up Iíve been in contact with two reps and they are clueless too. And it sucks cause honestly itís an awesome bike. Iíve had many and bought this outta the reviews and good word but man if Iím not ready to just give it away. 3 filter covers later properly tourqed to 8lbs as per brp but itís the same thing over and over itís the pure definition of insanity haha but Iíve done enough research to know too get the right covers and in all reality and this is a serious question I canít wrap my head around is why break in the first place. And trust me I brapped her but not too hard itís got me puzzled thatís forsure
