    I've been troubleshooting and haven't had any luck. It seems like the motorcycle isn't getting any fuel. I've checked the hoses and carburator and no luck

You need to use a small propane torch to heat up the rocker cover. It just needs to be hot enough to boil a drop of water or wet your finger with spit and touch it, if it sizzles you can take a pair of pliars and it will almost fall out.
Let me know if you have any other questions or problems,

Leaks oil from rocker cover. repaired 3 times. is this a common fault? what is the solution?


The rocker cover will leak oil..............

1. If the rocker cover has been damaged due to poor mechanical fitment and is no longer perfectly straight; or
2. The rocker cover bolts are not torqued evenly at the correct ft/lbs specification; or
3. If the rocker cover bolts have been excessively torqued in which event the cover will distort and the gasket will be excessively compressed; or
4. The gasket is in poor condition and needs to be renewed; or

5. The gasket fitting is sloppy done in which event you can assume the cover will not have been properly fitted either.

I would be buying a new rocker cover (or a straight used one) before doing the next repair because your original is probably deformed now and will likely never seal properly.

Free vehicle repair manuals


yes there is a seal on the cam shaft behind the water pump pully
undo that bolt
you have to undo the cam shaft to get to it .dont drop the lifters
19 nm for the can bearing bolts ..do not overtighten the two rocker cover bolts you can crack the rocker cover or split the cam bearing those bolts tight into
many say not to use silicon but because of the age of the car you need to use the blue silicone on the half moon the rocker gasket and the cam seal ..there are no online repair manuals for the tm-tp magnas ..the rocker covers can warp but rare

Suski bandit leaking oil around the plugs


sounds like the plug tunnel seals are leaking or badly fitted...these are the seals found inside the rocker cover (top cover) of the engine that stop top end oil from leaking into the spark plug tunnels.

I have a XR600 1990 model. I was washing it the other day and must have gotten water into the exhaust. It run but was really really rough. It then did something funny. As i was kicking it over it felt like...


Does your bike have the decompression lever? If so this could be what is jamming up causing your problems.
Otherwise what often happens is that the kick starter cogs don't mesh correctly, seeing as how you have taken the kick starter apart and put it back again and now no probs I would expect that to be your problem.
It might be worth checking your kick starter for wear, or the return spring to see if it isn't broken.

Oil leak from rocker cover


It is most probably the rocker cover gasket. This is enough to install, you just need to source the correct part from your local parts store or dealer. Remove bolts and rocker cover and replace seal. Ensure on replacement, that you use a sealant that is compatible with oxygen sensors, I use PERMATEX ULTRA-BLU RTV Silicone. That seams to work a treat.

1999 VULCAN HAS OIL LEAKING AROUND THE SPARK PLUG DOWN A WEEP HOLE AND OUT THE BACK OF THE CYLINDER HEAD. WHAT IS CAUSING BUILD UP OF OIL IN THE SPARK PLUG WELL? REAR CYLINDER RIGHT SIDE PLUG


hi, sounds like the oil seal in the rocker cover has failed, remove the rocker cover and you will see a rubber seal, this seals the oil inside the cover, however when the seal fails around the spark plug hole, oil leaks into spark plug well and out of weep hole.

I have an xr250r 1996 but wen i kick start it thers no compression but can run start it sweet and theres heaps of compression how can i fix this problem


First , check your compression with a compression tester. It should be at least 100 pounds pressure just to run. Preferably 120,130,140,etc.. Some motorcycles have a decompression cable that works off the kick lever, others have a decompression lever you hand operate. I believe yours is hand operated . I think the actual lever in the valve cover on top of the motor is sticking or the decompression cable itself is hanging up and not allowing the exhaust valve to close properly.
