    Looking for some parts..

    I seem to have an oil leak on my bike (among other problems) and I'm tired of waiting 3 weeks for my local dealer to get any parts. PO overfilled the engine with oil so I'm dealing with this. I've changed the oil and cleaned a bunch of stuff. I've tracked my oil leak to what appears to be the o-ring for the oil filter cover and the oil reservoir.

    Looking up old threads on here, I saw the oil reservoir screw is a M8X16mm - is there a better washer I should replace it with other than stock? Or a different material? Bonded seal washer? I saw something on the threads about the "KTM mod/screw" and people recommending washers from other brands but no specifics on models to source from or parts number. Can anybody provide more details? or can I just try an M8 washer off the shelf or any recommendations?

    For the oil filter cover O-ring, I read something about a viton O-ring to replace the OEM one as it seems to be a common leak issue. Does anybody have any to recommend or knows the size for it?

    Ever since I got this bike it has spent more time waiting for parts than running so I'm trying to change that!

    Thanks, I ordered it from the dealer but people mentioned on here that there is another alternative with a different material (viton?) or a slightly thicker one but no links or dimensions.
    Any chance you know the size of that O-ring?

    I use a 60x3 buna-n oring that I get from my local bearing shop. It is 1mm thicker cross section than the stock o-ring. Works for me.

    For the oil filter cover, I got a 5 pack of 60 mm x 2.5 mm. As far as the oil reservoir bolt, I replace the copper sealing washer every oil change. No drip, no drabs.

    All available on Amazon.
