How can I handle a clutch plate cover oil leak?
If you do not want to drain the oil, lay the bike (CARFULLY!) down on its left side.. let the oil settle down, Remove the right case, carefully clean ALL the gasket material off the engine case and the cover! make sure there are no dents, dings, scratches, etc on either surface!! Get some quality gasket sealer - NOT ANY FORM OF SILICONE SEALANT!!! I prefer yamabond #4. CARFULLY PUT A small BEAD around the face of the outer case cover face and place the NEW GENUINE OEM GASKET onto the case and make sure its seated fully around the case, you can use the screws to hold it in place until it dries. WAIT until overnight and it fully dried and seated/sealed. Now, carefully put a small amount of good heavy grease on the gasket then carefully install the case ..tightening in a criss-cross pattern until completely seated, then fully tighten all fasteners. If you do it right,, it will NOT leak!
What is engine oil capacity?
Without oil filter element
2.6 L (2.3 Imp qt, 2.8 US qt)
With oil filter element
2.8 L (2.5 Imp qt, 3.0 US qt)
Total amount (dry engine):
3.2 L (2.8 Imp qt, 3.4 US q
Just measure the distance (eye hole to eye hole centerline), measure the mounting hole/stud size, then approximate the overall weight and order some for an aftermarket co.
Header pipe on my xv535 yamaha glowing red hot
Do not run this engine any more!!.. Is the exhaust stopped up? This is the first thing I would check, Remove the exhaust - you should be able to use your mouth to blow from the engine side and feel the pressure out the back.- birds, rats, cats, etc. can be in there! Has this engine been locked up (flooded with fuel, flooded with water?.. and then tried to be started?? If so the the cylinder exhaust that gets red hot MIGHT have a bent connecting rod!! I saw this happen on a racing ATV once,,it flooded, they tried to pull start it.. once it cleaned out and ran - the exhaust got RED hot.. -- Bent con-rod!!
