    Check to see if the rocker cover is leaking, common problem. If the engine is dirty it would be worth cleaning it up with a pressure washer if you have one, then leave it a few days so you can spot a leak.

    check none of the breather hoses are leaking i.e the one at top left of rocker cover and bottom right of rocker cover.

    if youve got a breather filter (if youve done an airbox conversion) then make sure its near to the front of the engine bay furthest away from the interior as poss.

    this fixed my problem
