I have a 1991 Yamaha fzr600. My bike starts and drives fine but noticed it started leaking oil. I am thinking it may be a gasket or seal but I was wondering what was this cost to get done at a shop labor parts and all?

It depends on where it is leaking,if its a rocker cover gasket it would be reasonably inexpensive but if its a head gasket it wont be,check the rocker cover hold down bolts,they have a cup washer and a rubber seal under them,yamaha use them on fj,fz,fzr,xj etc and they do start to leak after a while(the rubber starts to harden with the engine heat),they are about 30c each and are easy to replace

Why is there oil leaking - or being pushed out - around my oil filter housing seal?

There used to be a copper ring as a gasket between the oil filter and the motor. Look if you forgot to put one there. (copper ring)
Supposed to be a new one with every filter.

Oil leak from bottom side of engine

Hi, Anonymous for this situation I would call my local dealer or reputable shop's service/parts department and inquire about any possible quick fix, answers, or parts inquiry. If necessary, transport your bike to the dealer or shop and have a professional technician take it for a test drive, if it is in running condition, and give you a written estimate of repairs and answer any specific questions you may have about your problem.

I have a 1991 Dodge spirit. The car will start and I have noticed that the oil pressure gage is low. When I stop at a light the pressure goes lower.And I also noticed today after driving 300km the engine...

It could be a bad gauge or there is something wrong with the oil pressure. Oil pressure can be caused by a number of things. It could be because the oil has low viscosity or simply put bad oil that needs replacement or the oil level may just be too low.

Other causes may be caused by worn out parts such as bearings or crankshaft journals. Check also for leaks when you park the car overnight. Put newspaper and observe. Have the car engine washed and see if the leaks are from above the car. These could just be bad gaskets or seals. Check also for the smoke that comes from the exhaust. If you are burning oil it may also be a bad gasket or seals.

Oil leaks out of 2000 Yamaha TT-R 125. How should I fix it? How many oil problems do they have on this bike. I think that the oil leak is coming from the bottom. Do you think it is a seal or a gasket.

hi ,
By the sound of things it would be a seal or gasket .
There are additives that you can buy and add it to your oil which can seal the leak but generally the best thing to do is to pull the lower case apart and replace the faulty gasket

Two questions: Oil leak from top of engine; bike shut down ridin

the battery terminal being loose would cause that, since the rectifier would freak out. the leak you speak of is probably not eh head gasket ro you would have compression problem with amount of oil that can run down the bike. It sounds like a corner on the valve cover gasket or something I think there is a cover for the valve adjust ment there so check it out the gasket may be worn. no biggie get a new one.

I have a 1991 Yamaha FZR 600. One day I went out to my bike after not driving it for four days and the oil indicator showed no oil and yet there was none on the ground? I put a quart in and drove it and...

I would get a full oil change. It will thank you regardless. The oil light may just be a simple electrical fault, bad connection etc, or maybe it has always been low and the angle you parked it at showed the switch better.
If you by a bike you don't know if it sat or what change the oil the clutch will work better, ensures better protection for the cams, and then you know what you got. If the bike still leaks after the oil change then it's a gasket or seal somewhere find out hwre its coming from then deal with it. hope this helps

Is there such thing as a 1991 fzr600 and a 1991 fzr600r?

1994-5 were the only two years for that bike according to this page. Keep in mind the model/letter designations are not the same everywhere in the world. On the page they also list several years of "Yamaha FZR 600 (reduced effect)" which someone could call an FZR600R, even if that's not exactly what the factory called it.

Please rate this answer a fixya.

Oil change worries

20w50 will be fine. It just gives you a wider temperature range. For example if 20w40 was acceptable from 0-90F, 20w50 might be acceptable from 0-120F. Nothing to be worried about at all.
