Hi,

Don't worry. The bike builds up a little oil at a time.
This is 2 stroke oil that is unburnt during combustion.
You might be running the bike a little rich.
A mix of 32/36 to one is good for outriding.

You should de-carbon the exhaust and replace the silencer packing. This will also give you some unexpected horse power.

Enjoy the ride !

I just noticed a slow leak on my 2003 deuce. What is the best way to deal with it?


Well, the first thing to do is to figure out where the leak is coming from. This is sometimes not as easily done as it sound. The wind while riding has a tendency to blow the oil back, up, and over and makes it look like the leak is coming from somewhere that it's not.

So, clean your bike completely even if it means using a pressure washer. Do not hold the pressure washer nozzle to closely to any part of the bike. If you hold it too closely to the steering head or the center of the hubs, you could force water into the bearings. I've taken transmissions apart and found water in them after they'd been pressure washed. So. just enough to make sure you get all the oil off your bike. Then, park the bike on a large piece of cardboard. Let it sit and watch where the oil drips onto the cardboard. The oil will drip straight down. This doesn't mean it went straight down to get to the drip point however. Once you fnd out where the oil is coming from, knowing how to fix it isn't a problem.

Good luck
Steve

Kawasaki Oil Pump Leak


Bad seal in the pump itself. It is like a weep hole in a water pump. It is letting you know it is time to be replaced.
