I have a 98 wr400. it starts and runs. but oil comes out of head, somewhere covered by gas tank, haven't taken off to look and try to narrow down. any ideas what that would be? how expensive to fix? would it be worth anything to try and sell as is?
If it doesn't smoke while running, I wouldn't jump to get rid of it too soon. That is unless you want to deliver it to TN! It is probably just a gasket or a vent tube. Take the tank off and clean it as best as you can. Then reinstall the tank and run it until it leaks. Remove the tank and look for the leak. Once you've found it just let us know where it is and we can go from there. I know how frustrating these things can be, just take your time and find out the problem first and then decide if selling is an option.
