A month or so ago I replaced my timing cover. In the process of doing so I bought an aftermarket timing window cover. The other day I noticed oil leaking from the rea and when I put a screwdriver on it it was very loose. I tightened it up. I reched it tonight and it was loose again. I have no idea why this is happening. The cover will tighten down completely so its not stripped. What I cannot recall is if I put an o ring around the cover duriung install.

I am going to ask a stupid question - If I take the timing window cover off will oil spill out? I hate to have to go through the process of taking fairings off, draining oil etc if I dont have to. However I also dont want to have to worry about this issue constantly. I need to check for the o ring and also put some loktite on the cover to keep this from reoccuring.
