    98 yz400f oil leak??

    I've looked the whole engine over and it is clean and dry everywhere. If I run my finger around the tube outlet it comes back with a decent amount of oil on it. Also the puddle is directly underneath the hose. I suppose it is possible that it is coming from somewhere else, but if it is I can't tell where. Any common places for it to leak?

    98 yz400f oil leak??

    Thanks for the replies. sorry it took so long to get back to you. I let it idle for about two minutes and checked the oil. It was about half way between full and empty so I don't think it was over-filled. There is a Yamaha dealer just down the road from my house. Is this something I should be taking it to them for, or is it no big deal?

    98 yz400f oil leak??

    Hello, I'm new to the thread and relatively new to dirt bikes. I had one in jr. high school but i am now 27 so yeah, its been a while. I just picked up a 98 yz 400f for 1,000 bucks. it runs great and starts easy but after riding it leaks oil out of the tube that comes down from the top of the engine on the left side. I've cruised the forums and found out that it is common to leak a few drops of oil here, but i think mine is leaking excessively. after every ride, be it ten minutes or two hours, i end up with about a 4 to 6 inch puddle of oil on the floor. it does not happen quick, but leaks out little by little after it is parked. is this something i need to worry about?
