So first ride on the 2010 450 and filter cover leaks oil around side or around bottom bolt tried new seals etc didn't work. Got dealer to get me a new cover it arrived today guess what it still leaks same spot. I don't have a local dealer I bought bike 1500 miles away. So they have been shipping me parts. So is it the case? What else can it be it doesn't leak bad bad but if I start bike let it get warm then oil is leaking out just after a mint. On the stand. Anything else I can try I really don't want some half ass dealer taking my motor apart etc replacing case when its brand new. Leaks on side of filter cover if your looking at it towards front of bike. Im pissed

How much would you sell the bike for since you want a Suzuki?

Seriously though, have you looked for any stress cracks? What about using a bit of Yamabond.

Is there an issue? That's really the question here...

Post a pic of a drip or run from the cover, just curious to how bad this really is. Secondly take another shot of your cover and face of the case with the cover off.. Maybe we'll see something to help you out.

If you recall, I mentioned the possibility of poor machining or damage to the case cover in your previous thread. Another thing you may want to check is that the bolt(s) is/are not bottoming before they clamp the cover tight. Screw them in with the cover off and see what they do.

The guy has "talked" to an attorney, It must be someone elses fault, and by George, they are going to pay.....This is what, as a nation we have evolved into. Most folks would lap the cases or gin up a gasket and use a bit of sealer to solve a problem that they didn't create, but could easily fix. Sorry what we have become...:thumbsup:

My new KTM 350 had a valve cover leak as well, I just took it off and fixed it. It was really no big deal if you have some mechanical ability. If it was mine I would allready have it fixed and be riding happy.
"talked to a lawyer" Now that is funny!

Well if a new cover and gasket didn't fix it there isn't much he can do. The o-ring sits inside the case not on a flat surface on the outside so not sure how you'd fix that one without altering the case and voiding warranty,

+1 I had a similar issue on a 06 KXF and the I was going to "fix" it myself and the dealer warned me that I do I will void any chance of getting it replaced. In the end they did fix the issue by fixing the case.

Just buck up and do the drive back to where you bought the bike and have them look at it and then Fix it.

I agree completely and that is what I did... sorry if I was not clear. Got rid of the 06' little over a year ago and got an 09 RMZ 450.
