I have the opposite problem...I've tried 3 different oil caps on my SD, and it still leaks a little sometimes. Many others I've seen do the same. It just doesn't seal well enough to prevent the blowby pressure from pushing a little trickle of oil out.

Has anyone here come up with a special trick to fix that?
