I think it's just the fill plug, so not too bad. Anyone have any suggestions on a sealing compound for those plugs? I don't want to crank it down to seal it. I was considering RTV.
Thread sealant. Like i use on plumbing fixture threads. Most of the good ones are for everything but oxygen lines for breathing.

Teflon tape works just fine. Replace it when you service. If you don't want it t I look bad after its tight you can pick the excess from the outside when your done and no one will know.

A drop or two every few weeks? Hell I wish mine only leaked a drop or two every few weeks. Mine marks its territory every time I move it. My rear diff is starting to leak a little too. I think we should organize a repair day.

That's the very first "real" flashlight I ever purchased; SureFire 6PZ Tactical. Still got it. 14 years and running, used every day.

I never could justify buying one because of the price. But I guess 14 yrs it would be worth it.

Just try out something kinda similar. I carry a mag light XL-50 for work because they tend to disappear. Decent light but not up to Surefire quality.

Could be, I used to look around and sight see a lot in between the gauges and the mirror... LOL Only reason I know it's me is cause the stickering on the door is Martin / Kading. Jesse Martin had a black helmet, mine was white... Only other stickers on that door were just a single Martin or Kading... The fact that there's two names on the door means it's for sure a race I was riding in and well, white helmet...

I call bs, that looks a lot like the Stig to me. Then again the Stig would probably be napping in the passenger seat.

Well in this one, wearing my KTM orange riding gloves, I'm pointing out Big Ben to the kids as we pass it in the round about for the 20th time.
