Well that's good news. I think the others should be ok too. As long as the engine didn't overheat or ran with no oil, there shouldn't be any damage. When my head gasket went in my XTZ, the motor overheated and definitely cause some kind of damage. Even after the gasket was replaced, it never ran as good again. I think as long as its not the same seal leaking on everyone's unit that there is no run of bad gaskets or anything like there was on the Prowler. Probably just some assembly issues like yours Tiki................I too had a oil leak. It was coming from the forward cylinder valve cover. Upon disassembly it was discovered the o-ring had been pinched during assembly. The missing piece was inside the valve train but caused no problems. The o-ring was replaced and no further problems.
