So my thruxton decided to start leaking oil at the valve cover. Nike has about 6000 miles. Has anyone else had this happen this early on their bike. Thanks for the input.

You might have more joy, typing in search on the Twin Technical fella and no, I haven't had that problem, its the first Triumph I have owned that don't leak oil.

My current Thruxton doesn't leak, but my prior Bonnie and the Gf's America did. Took it off and smeared a thin coating of black rtv did the trick. Don't just try tightening the bolts without an appropriate torque wrench, they are easy to strip.
