When I had my rear cover replaced,I thought that it was leaking.I took it back and they said it was the oil vent tube that goes into the air-cleaner base.Hasn't leaked yet,only 20 miles since.But , it used to leak if I went up the street.

I went and looked at mine real hard.I have a leak on the right side of the rear cover.Same place where your is Val,(the front leak you pointed out in your pic.Guess i'm gonna have to take it in AGAIN.

Is it a gasket or a seal?I noticed silicone on mine.So,I guess it a gasket. I'm gonna have to give the mechanic a training session on how you use gasket sealer.You gotta lay a bead down.Let it sit for 15min,or until tacky.Then you place gasket and mating pcs together,finger tighten.Let that sit for 24hrs then torque down to specs.I have never had a leak this way.Been doing it for yrs.
