Where's it coming from? If it's the rocker covers it will be the shit fibre gaskets. The Valpolini ones last forever and being metal dint rip or squeeze out.

Yep, factory ones are crap on the 1100...
Valpolini is the way to go indeed.

Yeah, got 'em in stock. They aren't expensive, about $13 each from memory, (I don't see a lot of 2V's nowadays.) PM me your address and I'll send you my bank details, you can do a direct deposit.
