Question about 2003 Yamaha YZF-R1
Error message 2 on a 2003 yamaha r1 when you just start the motor without letting the oil get the right temperature, and you troth the engine (the engine goes on pressure I think) it will release (spill) the oil at the side of the oilfilter gasket! What can be the problem in this case? Maybe the oil releave valve doesn't work properly I thought, or is this any other problem?
If the oil filter (metallic cylinder behind exhaust pipes) is tight properly it cannot spill oil.Remove it and check if it has it's rubber gasket or buy a new original one (better).Apply engine oil with your finger to it's o-ring (gasket).Tight it by hand as much as you can and then use the oil filter tool to turn it clockwise 1/4 turn more.Then check again if it spills oil.
