Just took out my new-to-me 2005 WR450F for a spin on Sunday after changing what was immediately needed (oil/oil filter, tires, sporkcets and chain, grips). After a few hours of riding I stopped to pee and noticed what looked like a tiny amount of oil in the dust. I assumed it was an oil leak from the oil filter cover, but upon further inspection it didn't come from there, but from a tiny hole UNDER the cover (basically under the bike)... Is this normal? Didn't smell like oil, and someone just posted having a leak from the weep hole (which upon googling, might bt what I saw?). What's the hole for, and is having two drops falling out very slowly normal? Coolant level is still fine (tons in the overflow reservoir).
Secondly, how do I know if the JD jet kit has been fitted? The PO didn't know but upon checking, the Grey Wire has been cut and I also noticed there's a QS2 (Boyesen Quick Shot 2 upon googling) on the carb (to reduce bog?). THE AIS has also been removed, so I'm assuming the PO also got new jets. Is there a way to see this externally?
Luckily spotted the leak in a dry place:
Leak location (can kind of see some liquid there):
I like the bike so far, but it'll take time to get used to coming off a KDX 200... Even though I ride a 4-stroke as an everyday commuter ride, I haven't ridden a 4-stroke offroad for quiite a while. Finding the handling and dynamics white different and I'm sure I'm quite a bit slower on it for now. I'll have to go on a 2-3 day trip to get used to it I guess. Try riding every week...
