Leaking base gasket?
Permalink  
 


Good evening,

 

Looking for a bit of advice. After a ride I noticed a patch of oil on the exhaust side that had been seeping out. Checked the oil and all is fine there so its not losing a lot. Looks to me that the base gasket has gone. Dry side just showing its not all the way round. 

New base and head gasket set from Totally TTR's?

please excuse the mud. Photos straight after a ride  ashamed.gif

Make sure it IS the base gasket before you start stripping it all down! Other possibilities are the oil filter cover, the oil feed pipe banjo (copper washers) or the clutch cover gasket.
Just give it a wash then take it for a ride to get it nice and warm, checking regularly to see where the oil actually seeps from.
Good excuse for a ride out anyway, and might save a few hours work.
Good luck!

PS Totally TTRs gaskets work perfectly fine, should you need them
