oil where cylinder meets case, ugg.
So I had the 685 KIT put on by the local dealer. Oil consumption near zero. The bike has more power and was worth the price. I had an Eagle Mike doo put on at the same time. Sure wish I would have do the upgraded Stator. Any thing else I forgot?
I bought metal head gasket for the head. I DID NOT buy one for where the piston cylinder meets the case. Seems like one would have came with the kit or the shop would order a new one. Now after 2000 miles I saw a bit of oil on my case near the starter. I figured I left the oil cap slightly lose or spilled oil. I cleaned it and checked a day later. Its back.
So I was wondering if is should have had the shop retorque the head and or cylinder?
I did have the valves adjusted after 200 miles.
Should I park it till I can have the gasket replaced? How bad can I damage the motor, it does not leek bad, just a seep of oil. But still not cool.
Hope you can help me. Hope even more your out riding while im stuck at work.
