I bought an 01 yz426f just a couple of weeks ago, bike runs awesome but leaks a little oil out of the compression release. I am very unfamiliar with this bike and im not sure where this seal is located. Also i am replacing all the plastic with new, can anyone recommend a killer graphics kit.

Pull the decompression shaft out and you should see the seal.
Look at the diagram here:http://www.crotchroc...d/2/Yamaha.aspx

Part #15 is the seal
