    Do you guys notice some oil marks near the oil tap? I haven't opened it or anything and checked if its properly tightened but still I clean the bike and after 2-4 days I see fresh marks of oil near the cap. Do you have the same?

    Some were saying that there was an 'O' ring missing under the cap, check yours.  :028:

    Hello, so O-ring is there, but they told at the dealer that they tend to be somewhat bad. So they replaced it and I ordered a machined oil cup just to be sure.

    Hi everyone
    I had the o-ring and even so noticed as well a leak from the oil filler cap.
    Mentioned that when I left the bike in the dealer for another reason ( engine dying ) and they replaced the o-ring.
    The day after there was a leak again. I've already emailed to the dealer just to let them know and for them be prepared to my complaint in person.
    Is it a normal thing in new bikes to have this kind of problems since in this case, this oil filler cap is the same for a great number of other models?
    I love the bike but this kind of issues on a bike bought new makes me angry. :006:
    Safe roads to everyone

    Mine was fixed after I added the machined oil cap which was an extra. Iíve seen several
    Other triples they all have this minor oil spill next to the cap. So maybe buy a machined cap
