But opinions are like assholes...especially on the internet.

I'd would probably avoid JB Weld though.

What type/brand sealing compound should I use?

Thanks

By "first oil change", do you mean the initial one at 600 miles?

If so, did your dealer verify it for you with their stamp in the warranty booklet?

Something I have noticed on the bike, is between the mesh filter and oil filter but close to the oil filter, there's a hole with threads in it.....seems like there supposed to be a bolt there but there's nothing. Dealer just said they came that way but makes me wonder why they put that there...
I don't know what else to use to clean the mesh filter since I've never had to do this with my previous bikes. So I guess following the service manual should be correct.

Not sure about the hole either, I assume it could be there for mounting the bike/engine onto a bed or for shipping purposes.

omegarider No problem, glad it all went well. I'm actually a bit surprised that the service manual wrote to use fuel to clean the mesh filter. Did you use fuel to clean yours?

Motul makes good products for both bikes and cars, I've had great experience with them too.

NavyNut Thanks for the help. In the 1200r owner's manual it specifies to clean it after breakin, which I think is normal as there's more metal shavings, but the mesh filter was pretty clean. I got the service manual for the 1200S as well. I applied some gasket maker on it. I had to tap on the bolts using a flat head screwdriver to loose them when the engine was cold, otherwise they wouldn't even move. The oil filter was extremely tight as well.

I'm using Motul 7100 for the bike, it happens that the oil is red and match the bike when looking through the glass Funny thing my speed triple was green and I was using 300v which is green, I guess I'm fashion like that lol. I love Motul oil as it seems better for shifting than the other oil I've used, although Amsoil is good as well. Royal Purple was the worst for shifting on my S3, never gonna use it again.
