I do see some oil leaking from the camshaft grommets, but that's probably just due to age. I think there are bigger fish to fry with the bike.
I wouldn't put time and money into rebuilding an engine with only 20,000 miles on it. Just keep riding it and enjoy. I was actually referring to Lando as his bike is a 2003.
