Question about 2008 Yamaha Crux

1 Answer

Oil leak i just picked up a yamaha crux It idled fine and ran ok(some hesitation) earlier but when i rode it about 2 miles in the afternoon it just stalled out at a stop(it idled below 1k rpm) I managed to start it up again and rode it to a friend's house. it stalled out there when i came to a stop. i also noticed oil spilling out from under the air box in the same general area as the shifter. i'm not sure if its coming from the airbox/carb or coming from the engine right underneath it. but there was alot of oil coming out. after about 20-30 seconds it stopped. This is the first time i've ridden a 4 cylinder bike. i have no idea what its supposed to sound like and what its supposed to feel like. when i rode it there was some hesitation and it didn't feel like alot of power. the previous owner said It needed a new air filter too which explains the hesitation. I'm not sure where the oil is coming from.

Your oil leak sounds like it might be coming from the crankcase breather. If so, it means that something in the engine is allowing gasses past into the crankcase.....

Obviously a piston ring gone bad, poor fuel, oil not changed. Try a higher octane or 2 tablespoons of acetone in fuel. Mix well

Sounds like water / oil emulsification. Is your bike water cooled or air cooled? If it's water cooled then you may have a gasket leak. If it's air cooled then you may not be riding the bike enough to get a good temp up inside the engine which would drive off the condensation inside the crank case / sump thereby leading to the emulsification. You say you rode an easy mile - certainly that's not enough to get the temp up enough to drive off the water. Was the bike running ok? Was it accelerating and braking ok? If so then try a cautious longer run and keep an eye on your levels. If in doubt consult a bike shop.

Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. Throttle cables improperly adjusted or pinched.
2. Idle adjusting screw needs to be backed off.
4. Air fuel mixture adjusted too lean start with 2 full turns.
5. Intake system air leak.
6. Fast idle choke ramp is not releasing.
7. Broken throttle return spring.
8. Damaged diaphragm or slide.
9. Faulty MAP, TPS, ATS, O2, sensors or wiring/connector

Sounds like it may be drawing air around the intake somewhere. Let it idle and spray around carefully with wd-40 until it speeds up. This will reveal the leak.
