Tip for a Beginner

Recommended Posts

Hi I bought an 03 DRZ400 E about a week ago haven't been able to ride it yet as I have a broken foot. My Dad has taken it for a ride only very short and when he got back we noticed a strange oil leak. I have attached a photo with arrows showing where the leak is coming from but I don't have a photo of my bike to show. Could somebody please tell me if this is a problem or what I need to do to fix it.

When reinstalling the gasket Suzuki recommends using some sort of sealant at the corners. So I bet your bike will be fine, just open it up and put a dab of sealant in those corners.

Also you should check to make sure the crank vent lines are not pinched. As that could also lead to a leak at that location.
