hey guys, when i bought this bike about 2 weeks ago, the guy told me it had a small oil leak. when i got the bike, i changed the oil and the oil filter. i noticed the oil is slowly leaking little drops out of the oil filter plug, when i changed the filter also changed the two o-rings that came with it. any idea why it is still leaking out of the filter plug?

ya know now that i think about it, i dont know if the oil filter plug had a washer on it like the drain plug does. is it supposed to have an copper or aluminum asher on it like the drain plug does? when i did the first oil change to it after buying the bike, i had to replace the washer that goes between the spring and the filter, so maybe this washer could have been missing too.

It's supposed to have a crush washer/gasket on the drain plug. My 91 didn't have one when I purchased it and I didn't put one till it's second oil change and I didn't have any leaks from the drain bolt.
