    2009 K13GT valve cover leak

    Has anyone had an issue with the valve cover weeping oil? My bike was in the shop about a month ago to have the valve cover gasket replaced because of a leak on the left side. It is now weeping on the right side which has caused me to postpone a vacation. Shop manager says valve cover may be warped.

    ** UPDATE **
    Tech at dealership says the chain guide rail was moving up a little and got stuck pushing on the valve cover. Seems strange as the path for the timing chain moves in the downward direction on the guide rail.
