SOURCE: Changing the oil/oil filter

I just got a 97 ZX9 and had the same issue... until I read the service manual. You need to remove the oil pipe flange bolt in order to get enough room to be able to remove the filter between the exhaust header and the motor case. Of course, unthreading the filter is an issue by itself. If you do not have the cap (tool) that fits over the end of the filter and provides access for a rachet tool to unscrew it, then you probably need to do what I ended up doing... punching a screwdriver through the old filter in order to gain the leverage needed to start unscrewing the filter.

the seal in your water pump but doubt it sounds like head gasket was it installed correctly? the head gasket is a crush gasket and can only be tightened one time after that it is junk and will not seal again there made from copper and crush really easy hope this helps good luck

Check the seal behind your water impeller there are o rings back there if one of them goes bad you will leak antifreeze into oil, your impeller is run by the oil pump i believe, you should not see oil in the water also your bike will run fine but when hot will foul the plug with water look for white smoke sometimes and the smell of anti freeze on start up
i have a 400 4x4 doing the same thing new piston rings and top end now lossing water but runs great oil looks real thin
took to the dealer to fix this week will let you know how i make out.

Exhaust system


radiator has to be removed then its just a simple job of undoing the header nuts and the silencer bolts, exhaust should be free to come off.
