I searched all the threads and don't quite have answers for everything after my first 2 days with my '00 F4.

- On cold starts, occasional misses while warming up. All accessories dim upon misses. By the time the temp gauge stops flashing it'll smooth out.

- Small bit of light colored smoke from front of bike noticed after driving a couple of minutes. Then gone by next stop. Valve gaskets were replaced 2 months ago...perhaps not sealed well enough based on the threads I read.

- Squeak sound upon bumps. High pitched like styrofoam rubbing. Damper? Shocks? Pretty annoying.

Thanks,

Peter

I think you are on the right track when you say the the source of your oil leak is associated with the tappet cover gasket.
Another point of interest, although rare, is the bolt and clamp that hold the oil pump in place. It's front and center of the engine block behind the headers.
Can't help with the occasional misses during initial start up / warm up.
As for the squeak over bumps, maybe a little family of mice has moved in to the belly pan fairing?
