    G'day all, I'm new to Guzzis. I have a 2013 California Touring bike. I have a slight oil leak from both sides of the valve covers. Where is the best place to order a new set of gaskets?
    Feedback would be most welcome.
    Regards

    Thats a pretty broad question, but you would hope it just needs new rocker box gaskets. Not sure about in Vic, but would suggest starting with your local friendly Moto Guzzi dealer.

    Things are starting to come back to me now, its been a while since I had a Cali, Look down between the barrel and the tank, you should see a hose attached to around the middle of the head, make sure you don't have a leak at the hose or fitting.

    After checking Google maps to see where you are I would suggest starting at Peter Stevens in Geelong. That's if you are allowed to move out of your suburb, just jokin, lol. But probably an easy place to start.

    Suggest Mario at Thunderbikes in Perth. I know its the other side of the continent but he is a god guy and knows his Guzzi stuff unlike Peter Stevens in Vic. If he sends by Express Post only takes a couple of days to get to you.
