Hi all,

I own a beverly 300 2012. This morning i was cleaning my scooter. I was looking under the engine and saw a bit of oil around head gasket.

I did not see any oil on the ground where my scooter is parked. The scooter is riding perfect at the moment.

I cleaned the area a bit and started running the bike again to look where the leak come from. Within a minute some oil drips came again around the head gasket.

Can someone tell me what the problem is of the oil leak?

Thank you!

Hi Nootje. First time I meet someone with the same scooter as mine, also a BV300 from 2012, in Cosmo Black.

Based on your pictures I think it is an oil leak in the valve cover gasket, not in the head gasket. Not so worrying. But if you want to get rid of it then replace that valve cover gasket.
It is in itself not a difficult job but I do not know what you all have to dismantle to get to it.
