head gasket leaking

Recommended Posts

It looks like my bike is leaking oil on the bottom head gasket the middle one and the top one....

Basically looks like all three are leaking....

Do they sell a kit?....

I haven't seen one for a DRZ400S model..

I have found one for the LTZ400 and a DRZ400 E model

also.. i keep hearing you guys talk about the E base gasket..

I take it that the bottom one? is the one you put the E gasket on for more compression... or should i just buy an E gasket kit?

What exactly are the 3 head gaskets and where are they??? You bike only has one head gasket but it is three layers thick on all drz's. It is between the cylinder and head. The gasket between the case and cylinder is the base gasket. There are two available, a 3 layer S and a 1 layer E/K.

If you order a cometic set you get a 3 layer head and a 1 layer base. Unless of course you order one for a ltz/z/kfx then you get both in 3 layers.

have you checked the head bolts to see if they are loose, kind a funny both your bas and head are leaking at the same time.

Nope, and you will enjoy a bit of increased performance with it as well.
