Having got back from a rather cracking ride in what has been one of the best days for it thus far, I did a usual check of the oil, was low pretty much as expected vs mileage since last top up. As I went to unscrew the cap I noticed a very small amount oil mist/residue around the fill point. Collectively it was probably the surface area of a 2p coin (alas forgot to take a pic before cleaning it!). Now I've had exactly this as well on my old dry sump bike (Yamaha MT-03) ever since I had it for 15k miles and despite replacing the O-ring on the plug, no change on it. I'm not concerned with it due to the old bike having it for many many miles, but it would be good to know if theres a thing to do to stop it! The O'ring on the Tuono's is in good condition, no visual deformations anywho.
Cheers!
