Well, the first thing to do is to figure out where the leak is coming from. This is sometimes not as easily done as it sound. The wind while riding has a tendency to blow the oil back, up, and over and makes it look like the leak is coming from somewhere that it's not.

So, clean your bike completely even if it means using a pressure washer. Do not hold the pressure washer nozzle to closely to any part of the bike. If you hold it too closely to the steering head or the center of the hubs, you could force water into the bearings. I've taken transmissions apart and found water in them after they'd been pressure washed. So. just enough to make sure you get all the oil off your bike. Then, park the bike on a large piece of cardboard. Let it sit and watch where the oil drips onto the cardboard. The oil will drip straight down. This doesn't mean it went straight down to get to the drip point however. Once you fnd out where the oil is coming from, knowing how to fix it isn't a problem.

Good luck
Steve

I ran over a nail, and now my back tire has a slow leak, can it be repaired with a plug or does the tire need to be removed for repair? Tire has spokes.


Although most motorcycle tires can be repaired, it's a good idea for safety purposes to use an inner tube in addition to having the tire repaired. I got a nail hole in the rear tire of my 2003 Deuce and had the hole repaired and added an inner tube, and it lasted that way with NO LEAKS for nearly two years, at which point I sold the bike.

I have a mitsubishi montero sport utility truck and my servic engine light came on, i noticed that it was leaking when i parked it, what do you think it can be?


As far as the engine service light, I'd go to Autozone and have them read the engine codes2_bing.gif. They'll do this for free at most autozone parts places. The codes will indicate what's wrong and you can then decide if you really need to fix it. As far as the leak, it all depends what is leaking and how quickly it leaks. Leaking a little engine or trans fluid is not a big deal. Leaking any brake fluid is always a big deal.
