    It needs about 8-10 hours so leaving it overnight is a good way to make sure.

    I know it's against your advice but I used Seal-All®. I've had great success under almost all conditions with gas, oil and water pressure up to 60PSI. I'm not sure if I got far enough past the radiator and fairing mount but I'm hopeful.
    I'll make sure to say what I've done if I resell it but the stuff seals great and can still be cracked loose if the case needs to be cracked open. it works for pretty high temps also but not UV rays so I'll have to be careful which way I park until I coat it with something.
    I also checked the crankcase breather hose, there might be a dry leaf in there from the sound but nothing to block it.
    I'll leave it curing for a few more painful hours, the weather is great right now!!!
