Has anybody had trouble with an oil leak from their decompressor?
I recently stripped that decompressor guide bolt and after using heli coils and curse words for two weeks, I finally JB welded that sucker in. Now I'm getting an oil leak from the decompressor assembly. Is there a seal or bushing or something on the decompressor that I've possibly hosed?
Man, I hope I can get that guide bolt out after JB welding it in there. Dooooooooooh!

that is the same exact thing that happened to my good friend Idahoan. He did the same as you. he is just riding it and checking the oil pretty often. it is a 1998 and he is getting a new one next year. He is not to worried about it. Why did you loosen it or take it out in the first place???

I had to adjust that valve. It was way off. To remove the cover to get to the shim, you must remove that assembly.
It seemed like it was loosing a lot of oil, but it barely changed on the dip stick. Worst case, I can just live with it. But it's such a mess. Especially since I ride in dusty situations here in Denver.
