Welcome to the group from o-HI-o. If you can trust the service you should be good to go, my 05 just turned 16,000 trouble free miles.

If your scooter is in good shape you should do fine. They are nearly bulletproof! Laughing

Welcome, Sidco10.
Over time, the grommet that channels the stator wires out of the right side case cover gets brittle and cracks, and the oil seeps out. Looks worse than it actually is. Best fix is to replace the grommet.
