    Mine does the same thing. May try putting the grease in there. I had mine put on by my local dealer back last December. Perhaps the new ones aren't as well made as the old ones.

    Thanks again, Don. Replacing the crankcase vent tube fixed my problem. The idle doesn't fall off when the bike's leaned over on the sidestand. I've yet to go for a roadtest, perhaps later when the...
