GB Crash Protection kit oil leak

Had an oil leak that i could not figure out. Finally found the cause: The bottom screw on the engine cover of the GB crash protection kit came loose and was leaking oil. It was only a tiny drip so the oil never went low. I had the kit on for almost two years now and didn't think it would be the cause. A little thread locker and I'm all good to go.

Just a little reminder for everybody else with the kit to check your screws.

If you used some Loctite to begin with *ahem* then this shouldn't be an issue. Having said that (and having used Loctite), I'll be checking my case bolts right now. :o
