 It takes about 12 minutes and you do not want to drop the little screw down 
 in the engine.

Just a word of a quick and dirty fix that may work for others.  The last time 
I adjusted the valves on my R1100RSL I removed the filler insert, degreased 
everything, and after reinserting it I applied a light coat of silicone seal 
around the outside of the insert and let it set up.  That, a new Viton O-ring on 
the cap and it's been dry ever since.
