If it is an aluminium cover take it off,clean it up and take it to a mechanical machine shop. They are used to welding aluminium heads and should be able to weld it for you. This happened to my bike . got it welded a bit of spray paint and its fine and the repais is un noticable. A lot cheaper than buying a new cover. Hope this helps If it does Vote Jeff

Yamaha XV1600. I've got a small oil leak just started. On first sight it looks like beading (like on a wet window) from the bolts that hold the clutch cable on the clutch housing. I've taken the...


Hi, Nollbert_bau external oil deposits fall into 3 categories:
1. WEEPAGE is oil that is sweated pass gaskets, seals, o-rings, and crankcase seams, it's covered by dry dust and is normal for older engines with lots of miles, no repair is necessary.
2. SEEPAGE is the same as weepage except the deposit is wet and confines itself to a specific area, repair is optional depending on the owner's cleanliness criteria, the deposit location and the amount of "DRACHMA" he is willing to part with
3. LEAKAGE is the same as seepage except it is enough to drop to the ground leaving a spot. Repair as necessary.
To find the source of your oil leak, start at the point where you see oil and trace its path going up and forward, blowing baby powder from the palm of your hand will help in those difficult to see areas if there is too much oil present then buy a spray can of engine degreaser apply it to the affected area then rinse off with a pressure wand or garden hose, use compressed air to blow off excess water or just let it drip dry, take your bike for a 15 minute ride and check for the leak.

Oil leaking from the bottom of gray panal under clutch, I have checked for engine casing cracks too!!


I suspect your oil pump leaking or hose connection is leaking. You can probably find a parts breakdown with oil system detail for your saw here: If your model isn't listed please contact them and request it be added.

Most Echos have outboard clutches (chain between the clutch and engine) this should help with removal if needed.

  1. Check the IPL for your saw to see if any special tools are needed.
  2. There are metal piston stops available, when square (almost never) with the piston top these work well, if not square they have been known to punch through the piston. I suggest a length of starter cord or nylon rope be used instead of the piston stop (retain 6" ± so you can remove it). Make sure the piston is near the top of the cylinder before feeding the cord or it can fall through the exhaust port and damage the piston as it rises.
It is probably a left handed thread (tighten it to loosen it).

Oil System Plugged.
  1. Remove the clutch cover, bar, and chain, clean the bar groove, any holes and passages on the rear of the bar (both sides, consider rotating the bar) Clean the saw’s oiler hole and channel. Start the saw and see if it oils when revved up. If yes reassemble your saw. If no, continue with 2.
  2. Insert a blunted, hooked piece of wire through the oil filler hole and pull the hose in the oil tank out (clean or replace, difficult to determine serviceability). Work your way through the linkage cleaning and replacing any defective parts as you go. Carefully check the hoses for cracks especially at bends and connections. If equipped with an oil pump it is usually behind the clutch (clutch is probably left handed thread). Please make extensive notes & some digital pictures will help during reassembly. GL
