Question about 1992 Yamaha FZR 1000
You likely need new valve seals (rubber seals that prevent oil in the valve area from dripping down the valves and drips into the engine as the valves open and close.
This is a 300 to $400 dollar job for most bikes. Some bikes may cost more because there is not a lot of room to work on many sport bikes.
Depending on how you use the bike and how fast it is leaking, you may not have to worry about it other than checking your oil level and topping it up.
I like the rule of thumb, if you use less than a 1/2 quart of oil per tank full of gas, then you are ok (as long as you remember to add a 1/2 quart every time you fill it up with gas).
