Crank case oil leak
Posted May 31, 2006 - 08:49 AM
It is not allot of oil we are talking about, just a couple of drops a week, and it’s only from a small area (about 5mm along the seam). When I ran the bike the flow didn't increase, if anything stemmed the flow as the crankcase heated up.
I have used the advice of several threads from here which have been very useful and have used the search facility, but in this case don't seem to be able to find any advice.
All I want to now is whether just to live with it and top up the oil when necessary (I change the oil every 200 Mile’s anyway), or is it a case of stripping the engine down and re-sealing the crankcase.
Thanks for any advise.

It is something to keep an eye on, and determine where the oil is leaking from, and then you can determine whats gonna be involved in the repair if and when its needed.

"I wouldn't worry about it and go ride " is really what I wanted to hear.
