greetings. my S4R has about 250 miles and has developed
an oil leak which appears to originate at the seam between
the left case half and the left case cover near the front
engine mount bolt. has anyone heard of a similar
problem on either an S4R or 996? i haven't had it
back to the dealer yet, but i'm getting pretty close.

Somebody here had a sidecover that was leaking between the sidecover and the case, but he found that the sidecover bolts were only about finger tight.

Perhaps snug the bolts down a bit, or at least check if they're tight?

My dealer told me part of the 600 mile service is tightening up all of the bolts. Maybe that will fix your leak, but I don't think you should have to do that, do you?
