85 1200 Aspencade: Oil from water pump weep hole
My bike dropped about a 6" diameter oil spot on the floor of my garage, shortly after riding about 120 miles. I had just changed the oil (and filter) with 3 quarts and 13 ounces of 15W40. (13 oz = about .4 quarts, if my math teacher did a good job.) The oem dip stick showed the level (cold) just at the full line. Could too much oil have caused a leak from the weep hole?
I'm grasping at straws here because I had the same problem back in 2016 (thread dated August 16, no# available) after working on the water pump and replacing the gasket. Problem was an o-ring then.
Note: Bike hasn't been ridden much in the last couple years.
