thick creamy gloop in the cooling water is usually indicitive of a blown head gasket. You are getting oil in your cooling system and the dealer should have recognised this.

So i was wondering i changed the spark plug on my bike including all oils, also included a costume yamaha fuel filter bike started fine rode it. Than second time i started it i forgot to turn gas line...

hi, the problem is that your bike is running to rich( to much fuel from carb to engine) so its the un-burned fuel mix that your seeing on your plug and thats fouling it this is caused by either to rich of fuel mixture(you should be mixing 32:1) or you need to rejet carb so it delivers less fuel to engine... your carb has a jet in it and the # is stamped on it ( if you take the carb off and remove the bowl( 4 screws) you will see it,it will have an octagon shaped head.) for example if the # on it is 55 then you need to go with a 53 or 54...... also a good sign you need to rejet with a smaller jet is your bike will spooge(leak) a black oily residue from exhaust pipe and muffler( same residue thats fouling the spark plug.)

1994 Kawasaki ZZR-400 Leaks oil and doesnt start sometimes.

that box is called the air box, its where you engine breathes in its air. you say its leaking oil? these boxes are normally a bit oily but only really surface oil. If you can actually see liquid oil you have a problem with your petrol shut off. When the bike isnt running petrol will leak into the engine through the piston. When you start the bike all the petrol mixed with the engine oil will be pumped back into the air box. also check the level of the engine oil, if too much has been put in there then that can also be pumped back into the air box. If the petrol and oil has been mixing you must change the oil as petrol thins the oil and your bike could catch fire, the engine wear will be really bad.

2003 YZ 250 Oil Change

Use 10w40 in the gearbox. Get the oil from your Yamaha dealer along with any filter your bike may need. Some bikes use an oil change as the "filter". To drain oil, get the engine warmed up and turn it off. Put a pan under the gearbox and remove the oil drain plug. Replace the oil plug when the flow becomes a slow drip. Change oil in late spring, the middle of summer and in early fall. Remember to lube the chain and adjust it when needed. Lubricate the cables with liquid graphite. Lastly, install a stock spark plug. Now go for a ride.

Please rate this solution as a "FixYa" if I have answered your questions. Thanks!

Spark keeps fouling but no clue why

Are you losing gear oil.
When the crankshaft seal leaks, oil from the gearbox is sucked into the crankcase, and this can foul the plug.
Also check the plug gap, most guys set the gap too small. It should be 0,7mmto 0,8mm. The plug should be a B9 EG, or equivilant.
Now, you can also change the plug cap to a type that has a built in resistor, this also helps with plug life.
Note that 2 strokes use plugs way more than 4 strokes, and you should replace the plug every 15-20 hours to keep your riding pleasant.
Good Bike you have there

Leaking something

if ure leaking a yellowish fluid, and ure having clutch issues..... i would imagine ure leaking brake fluid from ure hydraulic lines (that acuate the clutch). Im not too familiar with those bikes so not sure if its a cable clutch or hydraulic clutch. but it sounds like hydraulic fluid.

Water in the transmissions

not light brown but white oil on my primary chain. In my state of panic i immediately drained the vanilla milkshake from my bike and replaced the oil. The bike definitely shifted better and rode smoother. Well i checked the oil about 25miles later and it was still white! So i changed it again. When i called the Buell dealership about it he said its not uncommon for water to get in there. Should I have my transmission flushed and is it true that these transmissions get water in them?Oil is not ment to be in contact with water so it should not be a common thing. If water is getting in there's a gasket leaking. Get the primairycover off, give everything inside a good cleaning and also clean off the edge of the cover.Get some liquid sealer and putt the cover back, add oil, and check again after a ride.,,,
