CBR1000rr6 cam pulse generator leaking oil
hello everyone, I was checking out a 2006 cbr1000rr6 a couple days ago and I noticed that the cam pulse generator (i think this is what it's called); might be cam position sensor, on the left side of the head was covered in an oil mist which looked fresh. it looks like a black plastic plug bolted into the the head. It's not gushing out oil, but it seamed that it was not tightened properly so a bit of oil was getting by.
Is this just a matter of tightening the bolt or a bad O-ring, or should i avoid buying this bike? would removing the pulse generator and giving it a coat of RTV solve the problem or should i avoid this?
Thanks in advance,
