Be careful with manifold bolts.
In another post, the man thought a tick was a leaky manifold gasket and snapped the stud off in the head. If you have a leak there replace all three gaskets.
Never blindly tighten anything that isn't obviously loose. Always use a torque wrench on everything you can. If you over tighten steel into AL hard blindly, it will either crack the AL, strip it, or snap. Generally, when things get too loose, snugging back to torque may work only if you catch it right away. The gasket is usually ruined and could be how it became loose, not the other way round. Over tightening is never a fix. Trouble is, people don't realize how much mechanical advantage they are applying to things with tools until it is too late.
. . . I bought it from the dealer with 4000 miles already on the clock, it was a demo bike . . .
