Sounds like you have too much crankcase pressure.
That may be caused by excessively worn rings or valve guides, a hole in the top of a piston, or a crack between a cylinder wall and the crankcase.
All of which are pretty serious. The leak at the alternator is just a blown seal but the crankcase pressure must have been high for it to blow. first, carefully inspect the breather hoses from the crankcase and the cam cover to atmosphere. if they are kinked or plugged, that will cause the symptoms you describe. On some bikes there is a hose from the crankcase to the intake box. Be sure this is not blockes. Some bikes have a PCV valve, check that.
good luck.

I have a 1989 Yamaha radian 600. Do they have oil leak problems where oil would come out while riding on back tire.


It may have a crankcase breather hose/port around the back end of the engine which allow the lower engine to breath. If the engine has been over filled with oil/the breather hose lose/broke, or has excessive blowby (bad rings), the engine will push oil out. Most 4 stroke motorcycles are not designed to stay with the front end in the air for long periods of time or the engine will run short of lubrication and eventually fail. If you want to keep the front wheel up the engine will have to be modified so that it can lubricate while the front wheel is up otherwise it will cause damage!

Is the breather pipe on crank case suppose to leake oil smoke from the case side of the elbow


That can mean there is high blow-by internally in the engine. It can also mean an internal leak from a crack in the block, cylinder wall, piston, piston ring, ect.
How does it run? I have seen some older bikes "blow" a little but keep a close eye on oil level and check spark plugs for heavy fowling.

1986 Kawasaki VN 750 Vulcan oil level check


Hi, Tlcrawford35 if you are experiencing excessive oil coming out of the crankcase breather or air filter please drain all engine oil and replace half of the same oil that comes out. Many riders are overfilling their oil system because they do not know how to properly read their oil site glass or dipstick. The following procedure works on nearly all 4 stroke engines but to be on the safe side you should refer to your owners manual. Use your center stand if you have one.
1. Bring the engine up to operating temperature or let idle for 5 minutes.
2. Turn off your engine and let it sit for 2 minutes, this will allow the oil from the top end to drain to the bottom.
3. Hold your bike straight up or on the center stand and wait 2 minutes for the oil in the bottom of the engine to be level in the sight glass or on the dipstick.
4. Your oil level should be between the top full mark and the bottom add oil mark.
5. Never overfill your oil system it will cause problems:
a. oil leaking out of exhaust pipes.
b. oil leaking out of breather pipe/hose.
c. oil carryover into the air cleaner.
6. Your oil site glass must "NEVER" be completely full or empty drain or add oil as necessary.
7. Your oil dipstick must "NEVER" be over the full mark and should never be below the add mark drain or add oil as needed.

What would cause gas and oil to come out of the air filter


Hello check your engine oil level to see if it is over filled.
Also if it is smell it to see if there is gas in the oil.
what some times happens with older motorcycles the fuel petcock o-ring or diaphram goes bad and fuel will weap into the cylinders and into the crankcase. raising the level and pushing into the air box via the crankcase breather hose.
Also check the vacuum line from the petcock if it has gas in it the diaphragm is leaking.

Why has my Yamaha FZX 750 got an engine number of 1FM? Surely, engine numbers are bigger than this normally, is this a special one!


Sometimes a chain will come off a sprocket and get wrapped up at the casing. The casing usually will get cracked or actually broken. A replacement casing from the parts department comes without a full serial number. The 1FM designates the case to be a replacement casing. Legally, the dealer was supposed to punch in the original numbers from the owners title. The bike is special in that it is now 20 years old and is now considered an antique in most states.
