Angry [email protected]#$#!!!!! Oil leaks!

I have a 05 600rr in which the valve cover gasket was leaking, replaced it and everything was cool for bout a month. Now i have another damn leak, seems to be worse after a long trip. Dripping on my lower fairing, anyone else have problems with this?

Thread moved...

Use some Indian Head Gasket sealer next time. The gasket may have slipped when you put the valve cover back on.

If the seal is leaking to fix it you must start over. One of three things happened:

1.seal slipped
2.not cleaned properly before put back together
3.not torqued in correct pattern and/or range
