Use a six sided socket, take it off, check the 'o' ring, replace if damaged, copper grease on threads and re tighten to factory specs.

Are you serious? You'd go through the hassle of booking service time, driving down to the dealer, having the bike down at the shop for who knows how long etc. instead of having a look yourself and maybe having to drive the car down to the dealer to get a replacement gasket.

If I have a oil leak on any fairly new machine still under warranty, it's going back. So yes, I would go through the hassle. :-D Besides, as you just said, you'll prolly have to make a trip to the dealer anyways. :hammer:

I would check the torque first. If it just loose then clean it up and tighten it up and see if the problem is fixed. No fuss, no muss, no trip to the dealer and no explaining the problem 6 times to the bonehead service writer.

I think this is what the service manual calls "Plug, crank cover" and lists the torque spec as 18 Nm (13 lbf-ft.)

I'd take it to the dealer, like Cheap said. Besides, playing the odds it's too cold to ride any way.
