Carla, Zeta makes most anything you could want or need. Also, the 2018 is the exact same as years prior.

No one is saying it should leak a different type of fluid, we're saying it shouldn't leak, any fluid. My Honda doesn't, my Moto Guzzi doesn't; hell, my Harley didn't.

my 2014 does too. Never loosens, just doesn't seal effectively. It's not going to affect anything, no need to top off, but still shouldn't do it.

I'm still running stock exhaust, carb and CA smog. Removing SMOG made a noticeable difference? Did you do anything else at the same time? I was under the impression it changes nothing.

…running rich. To reach the air/fuel mixture screw, you have to remove the plug (what you see is not a nail head) that covers it for the factory. Do a forum search.

I believe the only fuel filter is the "sock" connected to the petcock, tank internal. No need for another, just clean it out when you drain the tank.

My advice, after general maintenance, is just ride! Then, after you have your baseline, swap sprockets as they are cheap and easy and make an enormous difference. THEN, consider more mods if you feel...

Most any oil will work on the filter, I use chainsaw oil. I would not run 94 octane nor would I seafood the engine. After fresh fluids and filters, just ride!

KLX678, you're correct. I was trying to get a bit more "pop", and not kink the chain so much on the front sprocket. After I swapped to 13t, comments were made I'd increase wear. My goal was to be...
