good morning fellow rocket owners; so I'm almost to 22k and heading to dealership for her 20k plus service of course the gasket is crimped at the all to familiar place a very little leak- question to the group- is there any roadster owners that do not have this issue? it seems i have to replace mine once per year.

FYI -
52K miles on my 2012 R3R and nary a leaky!

73,000km on my 2010 R3R - had it past 12K so unknown if earlier owner/s had issues and no sign of leaks since I've had it.

Less than me and two years older. Neener, neener, neener . . .:p

Mine only seeps (somewhere behind throttle bottles) when you run hard in high RPMs. Take it easy and she stays dry. Not much, only a very slight trickle down left rear side of engine which wipes off with paper towel. Not worth replacing yet.

... and mind you, Steve, Melissa more than likely has petite, 'girly-hands'!:roll:
Sorry, Fred, I couldn't resist.;)

I've met Melissa and your no . . . sorry, wrong line! :roll:
I found Melissa's to be not petite, but rather similar to a hard-body Amazon. :eek: :sick:
Wonder Woman-esque . . . :thumbsup: :D
