After a while I have come to the conclusion that I have an Oil leak... Well I stripped my bike down and grab some degreaser... and look started leak hunting... Well as you can see below I found it.... now how bad is it... what I did is clean it up as best I could...with my big hands... then started it up and with a spot light... I searched and searched... but nothing was dripping...after I turned it off to get a drink I came back at found what I was looking for... the strange part is there is a screw on top which I was able to tighten a full turn... but I'm afraid that that just not it... I cleaned it up again and let it run for a while and after I turned it off...nothing came out...do you think that simply tighten that screw would have prevented that leak... or could there be more to it?

The second picture is after I tightened the screw (in the picture) and let it rest for a while.

Well I was wrong... I let it run for a longer period of time... and the leak started again... this time it was not as much...and it took longer to start leaking... Guess I'll have to take it to the shop and give up an arm and a leg

Yeah I think replaceing the gasket cover and the seal would be pretty easy... it's getting down to it that I'm not sure I want to do and put back together... It sucks because labor is going to Kill me :cursin:

Time to invest in a good shop manual and lock yourself in the garage ... Besides, all these great helpers are just a click away!!!
Well go figure I have a soft-copy of the shop manual... been looking at it all day... and trying to figure out what all I would have to remove to get to the cover...there is just no way (That I can tell) to reach all the bolts... but I have the strange suspicion that the seal it broke, don't know why... maybe it's my worst case scenario thinking... but regardless... I would still have to aquire the parts required to resolve this issue... if it's more then tightening the bolts... what I'm afraid of is getting it tore apart and not being able to put it back together right. At least that shop that I will use will give me a whole 15% off the total price... :crazy:

It goes back the opposite of how it came apart... :dthumb:
Yeah that's funny...good point or points... I guess... but I'm working on getting a Mechanic over to the house to work on it... I have had to work my way up from Pizza & beer to Steak & Scotch... so you never know I may get this done for a lot less then I thought... :dthumb:
