I just bought my first TW, a used 2007 TW200 5,100 miles. I have discovered a small oil leak that appears to be coming from right above the starter cover. Has anyone experienced this problem, and what is the solution?

2010 base gasket.


To expand, just a bit, there was a problem with the cylinder base gasket for a couple years there, yours included. Get a 2010 or newer gasket to replace it. It's not terribly hard if you take your time, cross your t's, dot your i's, etc. There is a tutorial here on the forum for replacing just this thing. Good luck to you and congrats on buying a wonderful bike.
