    The best explanation so far came from bonehead... i quote "its italian, its crying for mamma"... that pretty much settled it for me, and i stopped caring about the weeping

    It is a fairly common problem and becomes worse at high speeds.

    If tightening the screws and cleaning does not work, try this:

    There is a small groove on the lid. Try carefully to deepen it just a little, in such way that the gasket does not seal the groove. The ambient air must supplied above the gasket and not from below.
    That was the solution in my case. Just be careful not to "dig" the groove to much.
    The best bike is in my mind.

    I noticed that my brake container is seeping as well.. Not that clutch so far. I need to call the dealer and have them warranty that for me!

    Old post I know, over the last fews day my DD has started weeping from both cylinders or at least enough to concern me. My question is how many others are just dealing with it, does a new gasket resolve the issue and/or is this something Aprilia can fix under warranty?

    Short answer is yes - it can be fixed under warranty.

    it is not a new problem, here in Belgium a known problem.

    I've also had my shiver 2008, all first shivers have had this problem until 2009. From 2010 the rempot and clutch cover revised and changed from sealing system. So I just ordered the new type cover for only 50 € for 2, and got after 1 year still no sweat more.

    yes but, being in 2012, they should have now installed revised lids in my Shiver, so I don't get why still weeping...!
    May I recognize revised lids by opening them and look inside? What the difference?

    It's a well known fault on shivers mine did it and I got two plastic parts fitted at my dealer under warranty, these plastic plates force the caps onto the rubber seals further and eliminate the problem.

    Very old problem. Nothing major.

    Disassemble, clean seals and around, assemble. If that does not help replace the lids. Easy Cleaning fixed mine long ago and it has not wept since.
