Roofus, do you happen to know when the last time the valve clearances were checked?
Cheers

They have claimed (to a friend / contact of mine) that the bike is sold - but that was over a month ago...

Several of the new Morini leak from the front cylinder on the near side; my GP does have a slight weep there, but not enough to affect the oil level significantly (i.e. - visual measurement) between service intervals. As I only wash the GP occasionally - Floyd would claim never - I don't really notice it enough to worry about it, and it never drips any oil on the garage floor. But then, I have an old British bike, so my reference levels are a little different...

Good riding,

Thanks for the info Chris, on both fronts.
It looks like that one might have the similar issue then, hardly a deal breaker, just the charm of it :D

What BMW owners used to refer to as "light misting" ?

Thanks roofus.

72, I always believed Italian bikes don't leak oil, they mark their territory
