    oil seeping

    first 1600, I just noticed an dirty oil film going down the right side cylinder. Of course you cant see under all the plastic. Any one else had this happen??

    A good first step would be to remove the fairings to see where its originating from.
    Then wipe it down and watch closely.

    Have the valves been adjusted lately? Did the mechanic install a new gasket?

    That was my first thought. The gasket may not be seated properly.
