Yup I work parts for a dealer and ready-made gaskets are a thing of the past. Techs use black or red silicone depending on application.

Well, finally got some time to clean up all of the oil on my bike and refill the oil. Went for a test ride, and am still seeing oil streaks under the engine. I think it may be the oil line going in next to the drain plug.

I imagine I need to remove and reseal the fitting that goes into the oil sump. Teflon tape ok for this? Thanks

For the oil line itself - That is an O-ring seal for the B-nut to the fitting mating surface. I suspect the fitting is then threaded into the engine case and would have a sealant.

Yes, that fitting looks like it's held with sealant. For anyone who has had to remove and reseal it, does tape work?

Gave everything a final snug, and am hoping that might have helped.

No sealant specified in service manual, just an "O" ring and tighten to 15Nm.

Thanks, Forchetto. That would apply for the cooler line going into the fitting. I'm wondering about where the fitting screws into the sump. There's residue of the same type of glue sealant that is used on the gallery plugs. Not sure if anyone has had to remove and reseal the fitting.

All the manual says is to renew the copper washer and tighten to 45NM. They call that fitting an "adapter". The washer is described as
Part number T3550905 - WASHER. M18X21.9 OD. COPPER

Got it, there must be a washer behind it where it mates to the sump.

Thank you sir!

Guess I could have looked at the parts list for the cooler online...
