  12. Rocker cover gasket leak

    Africa Twin
    Is this a known issue with the AT? Noticed a puddle on my garage floor, been dreading finding out the cause but it just seems to be the rubber gasket. From what I can see it looks fine though and I'm confused as to why a fairly durable looking gasket could just fail suddenly. Best pic I...
