In the upload of the TikTok account @Arie Perkasa, he admitted that he had contacted the official Yamaha dealer. However, because he was curious, he deliberately took his motorbike to a regular repair shop to check it directly to find out the cause the engine lubricant was leaking.

“Actually I’ve contacted Yamaha, and they asked for the motorbike to be taken there. However, I’m a curious person, aka I’m curious,” he said.

When showing the empty space where the engine sits on the motorbike body, the owner saw rust on the frame.

“What is this, it looks like you know it,” he said while highlighting the rusty frame.
