Put bike away for summer in good working order, then 8 months later put some gas in and started, sounded ok then stoped engine looked through window at casing and about shat myself, white oil. so i drain thinking it's a gasket and about that time i noticed the water only made it to clutch side casing. is it possible that the water breech came from water pump seal area and i stoped the engine before it made it to the trans?

When did this problem start? has the bike been sitting for any long period of time? any background on the bike leading to your problem would help. questions 1. will the bike shift into gear not running all gears check it first put the bike on the center stand and rotate the rear wheel and go through the gears shifting if that is ok your good 2. shifting into gear bike running does not want to go? grinds or lurches forward? problems from sitting for long months or yrs. sometimes when a motorcycle sits the clutch plates that are in oil will act like they are glued together ans some time can be freed after the engine oil has warmed up, in worse case you have to remove the r/h clutch cover and remove the clutch pressure plate and separate each of clutch plates and reassemble it.
For the gas tap, spray CRC lube on it, leave for an hour then gently use grips to move it.
For the clutch, need to know if its the cable or interanl clutch. Disconnect cable from engine and try, if OK its internal. If its clutch cable remove from bike and try to spray / fill cable and leave elevated for and hour / day. Then start see sawing cable to free up.
regularly change the engine oil every 1500 km or every 2\3 months whenever required, and also regularly check the tyre air presure \,that will help your bike to give a good mileage, regularly get a check up for your bike
hahaha, good 1...little vacation...good you made it through ok during the vacation. Anyway, 9 years is quite long for a bike not to have been started, If you want to be safe wrather thn maybe sorry later, check ur tank first if it's clean inside, no rust corrosion.if it's clean good.Then just get a new battery and try starting it(after putting gas in the tank ofcourse,hahaha). If the tank is dirty inside..throw some nuts and bolts in there and shake it around with kerosine, then rinse out with water..let it dry and put in a coating for the tank wall.Then take off the carburator and clean it out.change all fluids...brakefluid,clutchoil, motoroil,etc..fuses, bulbs.
goodluck since it's quite a job to do it all yourself.
well take the ******* clutch cover and the clutch out and let everything flush out. and any other parts that might have touched water inside of the engine. your most likly goig to have to replace something. who noes how bad the damage is,u might be able to just let every thing dry and soak it in oil then reinstall the parts. i recommend buying some extra tranny oil and flush out the cases with a quart or 2. also do this, use a heavier weight gear oil. if u regularly check for water and find it again. expirement and look around to find the problem, might be a gasket, if water is sneaking if somehow u might be very suprised to find the culprit.if it is radiator fluid seeping in, check the water pump seal and replace as needed..... good luck
but pulled it out later and got it to start that night.
My problem is after its starts i give it gas and nothing happens, just makes a bogging sound.
my spark is good, i dont have points on this year motor and the timing has been idiot proofed so it really cant be changed.
went through my carbs three times thinking its a fuel thing, but they looked pretty damn good. flushed the tank till clean, and xleaned up some corrosion from when it went under.
transistoriized ignition, unadjustable mix carbs and a nontampering timing(right).
im missing to much summer, any ideas, anyone.,water/moisture in the crankcase?? bad lubrication due to fudged up oil?? Im not even sure why putting it in water can offset your timing, unless its electronically controlled by one of the new fangled hall effect timing systems,,,
