Awesome bike that i bought yesterday after needing to slow down from my GSXR days. Well happy with it apart from oil p1ssing out of what i realised is the cylinder head base gasket. Got it home yesterday and after drying out from another glorious day's riding in the p1ssing rain and noticed my boot was covered in oil (on right boot - rear brake side just behind exhaust route). The question i need answering is will a quick fix of unbolting the cylinder head and putting some decent gasket sealent in the gap made by the missing piece of gasket fix it or is this area under massive pressures? I'm guessing its not subject to too much pressure cos the piston rings dont go down that far I assume? The oil is just spitting out a fine spray Just need to know whether i can get away with this as a temp fix rather than having to do a full top end strip down which i don't really want to be doing at this stage.replace the gasket before it gets worse and gets on to ur rear tyre,,

KTM Duke 125: dashboard shows "Low oil pressure" but the moto is just back from the garage, and he has certainly enough oil.

Since it was just worked on ... take it back and find out what the problem is. Could be a disconnected or faulty sensor. In any event, since you took it to be repaired, and paid for it, get it repaired. Don't run the bike until this is resolved. Low pressure is DEADLY to a engine.

KTM 450 blown head gasket?

Hey Anon, Run a compression check..screw the compression gauge into the head until the o-ring seats..( a coat of oil on the o-ring helps) hold the throttle wide open and kick it over about 6-8 times HARD.. you should get at least 120psi..if it is lower than 110psi you need to find out why...
if you don't have the tools/knowledge/experience .. .. take it to a qualified pro...

Water in gearbox and oil in radiator 1997 ktm trail bike


Your problem is coming from the waterpump seal. When the seal goes bad it lets oil from the crankcase into the waterpump and vise versa. The only other problem it could be is the head gasket but you would feel a loss of power.
