adjusting valve, oil leaking?

Recommended Posts

HI all,

Just a real quick question for a novice?

I want to check my valves, just opening up the two wholes in the crank cover, and the bigger hole is leaking a little oil when i take the cover off? is this normal?

Am i supposed to drain the oil first???

Yep, it is normal. All the oil in the frame has drained down into the engine.

So you can either lean the bike the other way on a triangle or something or drain your oil. But remember your engine has to be cool for 24 hours before checking/adjusting the valves so don't start the bike and drain the oil right before checking/adjusting the valves.
