Ok, head's up to all who have never done this, the bolt on mine is very tight through the filter cover, so tight it brought the cover with it when loosening until it hit that cross frame piece before coming free from the engine. Ugh so now I had to move that to get the cover/filter off, oh and to get outta the way I had to take the horn off, I should say most of this is because I had never done this before to Max and I didn't want to do something stupid, so to some it up, That bolt fits really tight in my cover, all good now no leaks

Probably caused by the o-ring on the bolt. They can be pretty snug fitting.

The oring is tight but not keeping the bolt from sliding out, after getting into it I tapped the bolt from the inside and got it to move, I was going to change the oriing but when I got to the threaded part of the bolt I would have had to unscrew it to get it out, I bailed out, it wasn't leaking so I left it alone. The oring is on the outside under the washer is that correct???

This should help out with how things should be done.
