Angry Front Right lower rocker cover gasket LEAK


Got my new '09 XT 10/31/09. Bad weather til 11/8. Ready to start it and see a small puddle of oil about teaspoon on garage floor under cowl. Traced it to lower rocker arm cover gasket. Right Front. Called Dealer that day. They will pick it up today 11/10. I want a new bike now! Any advice from anyone. Thank You.

Got my bike back in one day great service ( door to door ).
Feel much better now. This is the best riding bike i have ever owned (#6)

cheap ass gaskets..

HD has issues with using better gaskets on the motors..... the one between the rocker boxes and head are cheap ass, paper thin gaskets that will leak.. change to a 1 piece, silicon,metal one.. easy fix...
