My bike seems to be leaking oil from the rear valve cover also,at the vent entry. Can these O rings be changed from the outside,or does the valve cover have to be removed?

Try taking them off the bike with the lids open.Seem to come off easier this way,I think the pannier lid latches need to be able to move for the pannier release mechanism to work.
