    Hey thx for the info. Its Oil, I mean it's black so I'm assuming some kind of oil. I don't think it's from the pipe, if looking at the pipe it's like to the left, I'm thinking it's part of the side gasket from the cover on the side of the motor but up on top. I touched it and you can see small bubbles forming when the bike is running. The gasket kind of slipped out, and when I pull on the piece the oil tends to run.
  2. Hello Folks, So few weeks ago I got my first dirtbike, '99 YZ250. Long story short seemed like a good buy, so I picked it up, but after starting it at home I noticed it had a leak. It's coming from one of the seals, near by the exhaust area. Since I'm new to this whole dirtbike experience, I'm not sure if this is something I should take to a mechanic or attempt to fix it my self. I've been a street bike rider for a while and worked on those but never on a dirtbike. Do you guys know any reliable mechanics in the Portland area that I could go to? What should I expect to pay for such a job? Any other tips would be greatly appreciated. I can't go riding until I figure this out, and I really want to try this new sport Thanks guys!

    Thanks guys for your help...I didn't really practice crashing, but I do snowboard and ski, and few other crashing sports, so hopefully those will come handy. I will try the Brown's camp since I heard about this one and see what happens. Thanks again for your feedback

    Hello Guys, I'm new to this Dirt Bike world and just wanted to say hello. I just bought a '99 YZ250 as my first dirt bike and I live in Portland (Clackamas area). I've been riding street for the past 15 years, and had all kinds of bikes, but currently have an '06 R1. Anyways, I have no clue about dirt bikes, except to start it and ride , so any pointers to start off with would be greatly appreciated. I'd like to chat w/ some locals and get to know these bikes before I kill my self and Yes I've been reading the forums trying to learn a thing or two:) Take care!
