Update-

The parts are on order, the dealer expects to have them Tuesday, then another couple of days for him to forward them to me, I might have parts in hand by Friday - May 13.  Only need 2 parts and cost is approx $25.

I am thinking of just removing the side case, cleaning the area and replacing  the sight glass using some high temp adhesive.  The failure rate seems pretty low,  I don't think I need to overdo the repair.

Planning to take some pictures and post them for reference.

I really appreciate all the suggestions and support from this forum, especially ScooterBob & Kevin.

Later,

Terry

If you're pulling the side case order a gasket for that too.

Yes, two parts needed, side case gasket and sight glass.  Fingers are crossed, hope that's all I need.   The same dealer told me the air filter mod is in, so he is shipping that also. 

Thanks,

Terry
