Problem, wet on left side below cylinder head


I have a two by one inch wet spot just below the cylinder head on my MY00 426. It seems to be a very mild leakage since it is more like a oil film on the cylinder block. Is it something I have to fix at once? Any idea what it is?




Clean it off with Carb cleaner and see if it returns.

it just might be the gaskets are getting dry rotted. do you ride the bike alot???

I ride once a week and cleans it after every ride.

It sounds like a little micro leak in the gasket but I'm not sure.

Sounds like your base gasket is fried. If it hasn't had a topend, you might want to go ahead and do that. Not that this would be the reason, but you'll be in there anyway...
