Wheepin' oil out the Head...

Recommended Posts

Took off for a short ride with Eagleriverrider today and he discovered a bit of oil wheeping out of the whole on the left side of the wheep hole on the head... Has anyone had this happen? Possible cause? Second short run of the year. Just a few miles after a winter of storage.

Feels great to be on 2 wheels again.

Thanks

Sparkplug light? That "weep hole" is a drain for the sparkplug.

Its a drain hole for the spark plug cavity. Possible causes are a valve cover leak, loose plug or its not oil leaking. Are you sure its oil?

Had the same issue with my Z when I got 'er. Solved the problem with a pipe cleaner from the kids "arts and crafts" bin and a liberal shot of WD down the plug boot hole to flush it out. Truth be told, I watched it weep for a season or two 'cause I didn't know what the heck it was either. All good now though! :banana:
