    Thanks for fast response, im not a mechanical expert, was just wondering which side of the engine it is located. Right (kickstart side) or left (sprocket side).

    Thanks again

If I recall correctly, this bike has a centrifical oil "filter". Not really a filter as commonly refered to but rather a hub about the size and shape of an eggshell cut in half. Oil flows through the filter and centrifical force forces heavy particals to the face of the hub. Particals build up on the face and are thus "removed" from the oil supply. This type of filter is usually on the end of the crankshaft. To clean the filter just scrape away the soft buildup and put the engine sidecase back into place.

    It is located on the kick start side just forward of the clutch and on the end of the crankshaft. Bear in mind, it may be that no filter exists at all. Doing an oil change is also a way some of the smaller bikes manage to clean the oil. It has been a few years since I have worked on that engine and don't recall for sure which filter style is used.

If you take off the clutch cover and look to the bottom right of the engine you will see a black ruber strip. Pull this out and thats your oil filter. Unlike your usual filters you can just clean it and place back in.

Mines was and the excess oil was blown into the air filter box and as a result contaminated the air filter.

The only oil that can leak from iside your engine is from the gearbox. There is no sump as the engine is lubricated by the oil fed in through the induction system. Clean the area thoroughly and leave it for a while(overnight) then check again. The oil could just be overfill from the 2-stroke tank. By cleaning it first you are given new evidence to identify the leak point. Hope this helps, when you have more info let me know.

oil loged evap? the evap lines would be full of oil and the canister would have oil in it, but the evap system remove the fumes from the tank and burns them and then it filters fumes and releases them after filtering threw the evap canister, how the system would get oil lodged is nothing ive ever seen, now it may be possible to get some oil in the system if the pvc system was blocked but ive never seen this,

Wondering what is the best type of oil to use for a 2009 toyota camry? Synthetic vs. other??

well synthetic is with out a doubt the best,,,,ive seen car run regular oil for 50k miles and it was changed every 3000 miles and the inside of the engines were clean but brown inside from sludge and build up,ive seen the same thing where oil was changed every 6000 with reg oil and the engines are black inside,,and ive seen engine that run synthetic oil and they look almost new inside,the difference is clear that syn oil is far better,,but just remember your engine stays cleaner with syn oil but it does so because the oil picks up more dirt and lubricates better,,,so dont forget to change the oil filter cause now even more dirt will be getting trapped in it,beacuse of the better cleaning properties of the syn oil,,,,almost any syn oil is good,but MOBIL 1,AMSOIL are the best,,,,,they cost more but well worth it due to lack of engine repairs,,,i would still change oil every 4000 or so

My sons yamaha badger 1999 quad wont start . ive got spark . ive found oil in the air filter box

Oil in thew air box, if it cam from the engine is a sign of wear. Do a compression test to see if the engine isn't worn, and if you can, look at the valve .(If it's four stroke)

Just leave it there. It's not gonna do harm by just sitting there and it's definitely not worth taking anything apart to remove. In the future if your gonna eat your lunch while you work on your car, try having boneless chicken instead, it's alot safer.
