Oil Leak

I just noticed a small amount of oil seeping from the gasket at the front part of the engine right at the base of the cylinder. My bike is an 03 model with just over 3000 miles. Is this a common problem with the L? I am hoping that it won't get any worse and I can let it seep for a while. If I do replace the gasket I guess that would be the best time to swap out the cam.

sounds like the cylinder base gasket weeping a bit ... real common on a lot of bike engines, not all that common for our 650s ... cosmetic problem only, if that's what is leaking, ... no biggie ... :applause:

That is the answer I was looking for. Although, it may provide me with the excuse...I mean reason to go in and make some changes.
