Seriously not happy

I recently fitted the Ducabike clear clutch cover to by bike. Initially, I was very happy with it. I've done very little mileage since putting it on. When I first fitted it I ran the bike up and a lot of condensation built up inside. I let it warm up and the condensation then disappeared - happy days. Now when I ride the bike instead of having a window with some beautiful machinery to look at I have a window full of emulsified oil, looks like someone has thrown up all over my cover . I think the problems lies with the cover itself and not with the oil in the sump. Last night I removed the cover and cleaned it all out. I also had a look at the oil in the spy glass and all seemed well. I went to the bike this morning and the glass was clear (no condensation). By the time I got off the bike at work I was back at square one with 'puke' all over my clutch. Last night when I removed the cover, the bike was on the paddock stand and some oil came out but it wasn't emulsified, it looked normal. I think I will get a new O ring and try again, just wondering if anyone else has experienced the same/similar with this product.

Cheers,

Si

Such a shame . I hate the fact motors have oil in them . Who would have thought putting a clear cover on a motor full of oil would be a issue .

Its not like it is needed, I mean there's gas in that container on the top. Surely that could be used for something.

Hahaha love the replies!

After about 2,000 miles of riding all these symptoms stopped for my bike.

YMMV

I'm interesting in this as well. Seeing other bikes with clear cover and a red or gold spring retainer and I like that. I also like the replies as well.

Oil needs to get hot enough to boil off condensation, 200 degrees, if your short hopping the bike and not keeping it up to tempreture for a prolonged period of time you mind as well put your old cover back on.
