Slight engine oil leakage

I have done 3000km on my 999. Recently, I could see some very minor engine oil leakage. Is it normal?

I have known some rocker boxes and the crankcase breather to weep oil after a hard ride.

I didn't ride that hard...reved to 7,000rpm usually.

and...i wonder if its a common problem and if i need to do something to the engine in long-run.

thanks guys.

the technical support here in Hong Kong isn't that great as the market size is too size to justify a significant franchise. Anyhow, I will check with one close friend here who used to work for Ducati in the UK.

Cheers~
Alex

Dave, what do you mean x6? 6 bolts? I have similar situation on the rear rocker and I guess its due to similar situation. Am I supposed to tighten them up (btw, I have only seen 4 bolts on the top cover) to a specific force rate as the manual doesnt really say so.
