the dearship fixed my second damn oil leak on my bike today, its the crankshaft seal this is the second time they have had to fix it, after i got done riding yesterday the left fairing had oil runs down the side of it. Maybe its just mine but has anyone else had this happen?

It's quite possible that this problem is unique to your bike.
I've got 4k on mine and no sign of any oil.
How many miles do you have on yours??

ahhh man me to!!! I dont know exactly where its coming from but after i ride i see oil on the left fairing right near the crease where the opening is to look at the headers (i think those are headers). The truth is i had that problem the first month i bought the bike may 22,, i just though it was like dirt or something that smeared on the fairing. Turns out its oil! I can see it from the outside looking in,,its not like dripping or leaving drops on the floor in the morning,,its just when i finish riding i see the residue from the wind blowing some oil on the fairing!

Im waiting for the dealer to call me and let me know how bad the damage is!!

Oh and i am planning on taking out my cat...would that void the warrantee?
Provided it doesn't chew through any cables, get a paw caught in the chain or push you over the maximum load weight I can't see why it should :rotflmao

how long did you have to leave your bike at the dealer for? mine wanted me to leave it there for 1-2 days..NOT only that, the wanted to see what the problem was and see if i caused it or not..gay.

More then likely that's just a little overspill from when the filter was removed. Clean it up, check your oil level and see if more shows up inside your fairing. If more shows up then you've got a problem.
I stopped by the dealer today and they told me it looks like chain lube is getting caked up because it's been so hot and to buy some degreaser to clean it.

Are these problems only on 2007 models? Sounds like these new bikes have a few problems. I hope my 2006 won't get any problems like that..
