weep hole!!!

just got a new piston rings and valves and ported the head. went and put it all back together and used new seals the whole deal. the oring under the cams is brand new and so is the one on the top but it is dripping oil out of the weep hole like crazy why? please help!

If you are talking about the hole on the side of the cylinder head, it´s not a weep hole.

The hole is there to drain water from the spark plug.

If oil comes out here, the o-rings or cam cover gasket is pinched. Or you have a crack in the head, causing oil to go right through the material.

The weep hole is on the underside of the waterpump. If it leaks oil or water through this hole, you need to replace the waterpump seals.

yes it is the hole in the side of the head sorry. and would this cause the spark plug to be a bit oily?

Sorry, I was mistaken. The cam cover gasket is changed, and has nothing to do with it. The upper o-ring does what the old gasket did.

There is only the orings that will cause a leak into the spark plug well.

The o-rings are different sizes, the lower one is 23.5x2.0 mm.

The upper one is 24.7x2.4 mm.

Don´t mix them up.

on the kawis you need to replace both o-rings,they flatten out and leak as yuo have described.and as mentioned earliar,dont get them mixed up.

      Alright so I just rebuilt my 2012 kx250f complete rebuild. I put the motor back in the bike get everything hooked up and ready to go it takes a few kicks at first (obviously) but after it starts it sat and idled just fine for a while then it stalled out. Tried to start it again wouldn't start I took the spark plug out of it it looked good I was dark and wet. I cleaned it then put the spark plug back in it it took a few kicks but started right back up again then after a while it stalled out again and now I can't get it to start again!? Any help would be greatly appreciated thank you guys and girls for reading and hopefully for the help!!!

      As close to new as I'd imagine you'd get! I bought the bike brand new, I'm older and have taken extremely good care of this bike. Very little use and is COMPLETELY stock - everything is original. 
      Comes with the title, original book and map couplers for the fuel injection.
      $4700 - cash

      Time for a top end on my bike, just wondering if there are any alternative Valve springs i can use. I have PC cams and $400 for just the springs and retainers is alil costly at the moment.
      This has been fun in other sections of TT, so I'll start the thread here and see if we can keep it going.
      Let us know what kind of mods, fixes, changes, etc.., you performed today, or just general fun you had with, your KX250F.
      I'll start with.. I installed a correct for my weight Race Tech shock spring, along with a Pivot Works shock spring thrust bearing. Also cleaned out all the nasty yellow plastic/wax crap that passes for grease in the lower shock bearing, and re-lubed it with Bel Ray waterproof.
