Time to change all those gaskets... ?
The bike as 70 000km.

Thanks so much
Welcome to the Forum!
I'm running the same set-uo on my '98 1200 as well. I like it a lot. Which cylinder is leaking?
I seriously doubt that the breather hose / banjo bolt system could have any affect on your gasket leaks. I think that the 50,000 miles on the speedometer is a more likely culprit.
Good luck with your gasket change,
Joe
