I thought the price was good until today at 900+ miles it started or actually had been leaking (seeping) oil on the right side case, now its off to the dealer for some warranty work. Not Even COMPLETELY Broke In!!!!

Its leaking on the front right side where the water pump is, just below the line that goes to the Cylinder, I was told that alittle Yamabond is all thats needed but its under warranty so Iam taking it in tomorrow to let them see it before I buy the Yamabond. Ill post a before and after picture of what I cleaned and what leaked out 6 miles later. Thanks

The first picture is what it looked like after I cleaned the worst of the oil off, second picture is after I cleaned it spotless and rode 6 miles and came back and it was already leaking from the backside of the bolt pictured.
