I absolutely love my bike but find little oil leaks annoying at times. Any suggestions on how to prevent leaks from the air cleaner, the gas cap and the exhaust gasket.

Thanks

Clean the air filter egularly, and make sure your not running too rich.
Don't over fill the tank....simple but over looked.
Make or buy a new exhaust gasket and check the nuts once a day.

use high-temp RTV on the intake and exhaust gaskets. Also where the carb connects to the intake manifold.

As Bikeguy said, clean air filter regularly and make sure your air/fuel ratio is correct. And check all nuts/bolts regularly.

You can get a new gasket for the gas cap if it's leaking badly. A little bit here and there is normal, as the cap has to vent for it to work.
