Question about 1982 Suzuki GS 650 GT
While riding my 1982 Suzuki GS 650 G I have oil leak on the front of the motor coming out on the right side getting my work boot and the side of the bike wet with oil. I had a new headgasket put on to solve the small leak that was coming from that area. When I got the bike back there was a terrable leak from the lower cylinder gasket so I, like a dummy, took it back to the same place and had the lower gaskets and rings replaced.The bike runs just fine, but now it has a leak I can't seem to find even with automotive engine oil leak dye.
Anybody have a similar problem with this?
Its funny you should mention this but yes, I had its bigger brother the GS 850 G , same problem, Apparently, in my situation I did the same thing and went to the shop and let those butchers make it worse !!!, the way i found my leak was by washing the motor with a grease and oil cleaner , strayed the whole motor and wash it all off totally, then I turn her on and let her get to operating temp went for a few mile and came back and checked it, for me it was the head gasket the guys put on and i forced them to do it again,
I found out later that it was common with the suzi's of that model and ended up doing it myself, I used the original gasket and used a compound called gasket goo and it never leaked through out the 8 years i had it .
But before you do anything , surly they gave you warrant y on the work so take it back and demand they do it properly.
Cheers and ride safe
