Re: Oil leak around filler cap

Greg, Simply remove the filler. Then remove the plastic piece that stays in the valve cover. Clean all parts and remove the two 0-rings for cleaning also. Assemble all clean and you should be leak free. If not, new 0-rings could be in order, but I think most people who replace these o-rings really didn't need to. I went 40k miles with no leak, and the other guys I saw with leaks were easily fixed with a good cleaning.

So in my standard hamfisted approach to working on my bike, while doing an oil change I poped out the oil filler cap and the piece that it goes into. I poped it back in but now I've got a leak going.

Is there a way to fix this or do I need to purchase a part to make the oil leak go away.

And more importantly can I justify buying a new tool to fix this problem?

  Hey Marc, I finally got around to buying a TwinMax
