Recommended Posts

Just posted earlier about re jetting. Did it and it runs fine now. It was dry today so no washing but I decided to scrub the bottom of the motor. I noticed transmission oil running from the bolt in the picture. I tried to tighten it but it won't tighten. How do I fix this?

That looks like it came from the case, not the bolt. You have been over tightening that bolt too many times. Repair would depend on what you were best at.... heli coil or tap for a new bolt and copper washer.

I don't reccomend helicoil as it isn't a very liquid tight seal. My friends CR125 drain bolt stripped out, so we just tapped it a size larger and used a drain plug from a car oil pan, works great.
