I recently purchased a new 08'. I have oil leaking from under the right head cover. Berfore I take it to the dealer, I thought I'd check the cover fasteners for proper torque. Can anyone tell me what the proper torque values are? TIA

Snug. If it leaks stop by the dealer.

All good - follow-up.

I took the bike to the dealer today. It turns out that the leaking oil was not from the crankcase, but only residual packing oil used when prepping new bikes for shipment.

Doggone mystery oil anyway, and it's hard to get off a Wing. We sell only a few Goldwings at our shop, but after the PDI, I'm the one that does the final clean-up on them for the showroom or delivery to the customer. Shop stewards just aren't careful enough for my tastes, and the mechanics have more pressing chores to attend to, so I do it myself. Same goes for the other street bikes that go in the showroom.
