Noticed an oily substance on the left front came out but cannot see where coming from -checked the oil and that is fine

More than likely it is leaking a few drops of engine oil either trough the valve cover gasket or from one of the valve cover bolts. more like the valve cover. Could be just loose. Check the bolts for torque.

How to replace head gasket

Hello and welcome to Fixya, First remove tank, remove spark plug cap and plug. Take the tappet covers off ( valve adjuster caps). Then remove the round timing covers on the side of the engine. Rotate the engine either by the kickstart, but recommend using a socket wrench on the flywheel. Rotate until you start to see the intake valves start to go down, as soon as they start coming back up. Use a flash light and continue to rotate slowly until you see a T mark, line it up with the case cover mark. Now you are on Top Dead Center. Remove all your valve cover bolts in a criss cross pattern a little at a time. Remove cover. Now on the rear side of the cylinder/head area there will be a cam chain tensioner, remove it. Now you can remove the cam sprocket, make sure to use a piece of wire or anything to tie up your cam chain to prevent it from falling down into motor or coming off lower gear, just make sure there's good tension on it when you tie it up, tie it up to the handlebar. Remove camshaft. Next remove your exhaust pipe, now remove all the fasteners holding your head down. Next remove your wire tied up at handlebar holding cam-chain, and slowly remove your head. Clean any carbon buildup, inspect cylinder for any abnormal wear (deep scratches ect..) Remove old gasket and clean both surfaces. Now as long as everything looks good just follow in reverse order, make sure when you install camshaft the lobes are facing down, and your camshaft gear marks are lined up with head and your still on the T mark. Check this a few times to make sure the engine didn't move some, if it does just put it back on the T mark. Once you get head, and valve cover back on check your valves to make sure there adjusted to spec. Also make sure you replace your exhaust gasket as well. If I can help you further please don't hesitate to ask, Thanks for your question. Good Luck :)

Just got cx500 custom 1981 leaking oil when i start up from small hole on side of cylinder what do i do

If the oil leak is coming out of the spark plug drain hole , the inner valve cover seal is leaking or not installed correctly. Take out the two bolts holding on the valve cover and remove the cover. If the valve cover gasket has silicone on it , pick off all the silicone and put the gasket and cover back on. That should fix the problem. Silicone on the type of gasket can make it leak. If the gasket is hard or cracked replace the soft rubber gasket and put it on by itself with no extra sealant.

Hi I have an oil leak @ the front of the engine. It looks like it coming from that chrome cover on the front of the motor is this the breather It is a 2001 v star 1100 classic Thanks

is it The cover behind the front tire with the 2 allen screws holding it on ?, this is the cover for the lifter adjustment. i believe its chrome. Remove the cover and you'll see the valve spring and rocker arm. This is where you make the valve adjustment. The cover has a rubber type gasket around it. You can purchase them from your Yamaha dealer. Replace the rubber gasket and your problem is over. Once you remove the cover you will see. Good Luck!

Rockerarm cover gaskits leaking.

These are difficult covers to remove but it is possible to do without removing the engine. You will need to remove ALL of the engine mounting bolts. I have always found it easier to maneuver the engine if the carburetor has been removed as well. You will also need to remove the exhausts including the header pipes. Carefully lift the front of the engine a little and slightly rotate it counterclockwise. Then you should be able to carefully leverage the entire engine forward slightly. At this point you should have just barely enough space to unbolt and remove the valve cover in order to repair your valve cover gasket. Make sure you get a new gasket and cam end plugs. It is recommended by Kawasaki to use "Three-bond 1211" liquid gasket sparingly on the gasket and cam end plug mating surfaces. Carefully replace the valve cover paying special attention to the position of the rubber components before securing the cover. Then simply follow the instructions in reverse to reposition the engine. Have fun ... I too have had a lot of choice words for Kawasaki during these types of repairs, good luck

Valve cover gasket

The rocker cover gaskets can be changed with the engine installed. There are some low profile tools available to make getting to some of the bolts easier.
