Exclamation Oil Leak

I recently purchased a 2003 R1200CL. I have a small oil leak come from the left head at the oil filler cap. The left ankle gets splattered with oil. The cap is on tight, the seal is in place and it appears to be in good condition. Is this a common occurrence with BMW's? Any suggestions.

Re: Oil Leak

There are 2 "O" rings to replace. One on the cap and one in the plastic base the cap screws into. Not uncommon.
