Hi guys, I recently picked up an 01 WR426 I'm noticing some oil seepage coming from the timing plugs (brand new motor). I tightened the top one slightly, I didn't want to strip the plug, it still seeps. It isn't a lot of oil, but it is annoying. The bike is equipped with the GYT aluminum Timing plugs. Anyone else have this issue? What was the solution?

Remove it and check the O-ring and replace if necessary.
