Re: oil leak
I have a 1996 Trophy (same engine)that had a small leak. I would see it on the exhaust pipe near the sidestand mount/alternator. It was the alternator 'O' ring which was the problem. Not a lot of oil, and more a nuisance than anything else. No more oil leak after replacing the "O" ring.
