Brand new lazer Z leaking hyrdo oil. Less than 6 hours.

Leak looks like its coming from left reservoir cap. I found it when i was blowing it off. one reservoir dirty than the other one. What you think cause this? Im taking it to dealer this week. Only 6 hours on it, I hope its something small to fix. I been very careful with it havent hit nothing.

They might have either overfilled unit or spilt some while topping it off

Most likely over filled a little. As the fluid expands from heat it leaked out of the cap.

Overfilled or air pocket. Check hydro oil level, clean it up and give it a test run.

ours was doing this . I believe they have a blow out valve or something in the cap that lets air/extra fluid out. I think
