Question about 1979 Yamaha XS 650 SF
Two questions: First one I have an oil leak coming out of the area directly above the exhaust pipe on the right side. It is coming out of the area with a cover with some bolts holding it on. Runs out of here then down across the engine eventually making it to the kick stand. Do you think this is a gasket or head gasket problem?
Second I was riding other day and all of a sudden bike shut down no electric or power, coasted to a stop and couldn't start again. Noticed that positive battery terminal was loose? Could this be the problem or do you think other??? 1979 Yamaha 650 Special
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.
