I'm hopefully going to buy an 1100. (Have to sell my current bike first.) On another forum, someone mentioned in passing oil leak problems with the 1100 motor. It was the first I'd heard of any problem. I couldn't find anything else about any supposed oil leak problems. Anyone here have any problems, or know anything about this? I'm having a hard time thinking there's really a problem. Thanks.

I had a oil leak on my 696. I guess it only has happened for a few guys. Basically the casing on the left side of the motor had a sealing problem. It had something to do with the aluminum "heart" and aluminum alloy cover not being the same and the silicon not sealing... Its hard to describe. It was the easiest fix though, I took it to the dealership and they cleaned it up and dried it out, and two days later I got my bike back, and 6000 miles later no leak!
