try a little bit of the high temp rtv silicone (red) on the gaskets. we just did it on my friends pro xr 440 and it stopped it from leaking

ya like storym said put some of that silicone on, we did it to my friends 2000 Xc 600 and then rode yesterday and no more leaks! his used to drip too and its fixed now. And if it works for him im guessin itll work for you seeing as he pounds the snot outta his sled

use grey silicone,its gas and oil resistant more than the others.
dont seal the cap, the oil will just build up. IMO disassemble and find the leak istead of putting a "bandaid" on it

no I dont tihnk youre wrong and you know what, if youve figured out the problem and fixed it but it still leaks try the silicone. its not putting a band aid on it, it will fix it and the oil wont build up per say becasue it will stop the leaking. it would only build up if you left space between the silicone and the cap. either silicone will work and besides the only other thing to do would be to but a new oil resrvoir and i dont even know if that would help. PLUS its a pain to take out the oil reservoir because there is so much shit its bolted to

Shouldn't the bellows prevent oil from getting into the cap? I had a ton of oil in my cap, but that was because my bellows was torn. I can't remember exactly how everything is put together in that assembly, but it seems like there shouldn't be that much oil getting into your exhaust valve cap. Is your injection system using the right amount of oil?

you would only take the oil reservoir off if oyu wanted to put a whole new one in with new bellows etc... but for now i would just silicone it til the end of the season
