Doing Maintence

So, I took off the seat and the gas tank, I notice I was missing one of the rubber pucks from under the tank. I also found a loose part under the motor and on top of the skid plate. Next I took of the sprocket and noticed that there seems to be oil coming from the shaft area. Do I have a oil leak here? Does anyone know were this part is from?

That spare part is a top portion of a bar mount. Take a look at your handlebars and see if it looks familiar.


Word on the street is, running too tight of a drive chain can wreck that seal behind the countershaft/ front sprocket. I don't know about that, but a tight chain can definitely damage bearings and such. Your seal does appear to be weepng oil, and not just your typical greasy sprocket area. Clean her off good and see if it oozes again.

That aluminum clamp bracket appears to use 6mm bolts. Possibly for aluminum hand lever guards.

Degrease and dry the sprocket shaft and engine case thoroughly. Spray with several coats of foot-powder, let dry. Start engine. Could be coming from the o-ring between collar and shaft or possibly from the seal only. Foot powder will dis-color quickly from the actual area.

Thank you both, I will be using the power washer to get most of the grime off, and will degrease the area. It's to big for handle bars , but I don't see anything like it on the bike, so it probably doesn't belong on anything on it now. also, how the heck do I get a socket to the spark plug? well I will look that up lol, back you youtube.com

Looks like a spacer that would go between the frame's down tube and a skid plate.

That's what I was thinking, but the u bolt that is there isn't long enough to put it on, so I am guessing that he cut the u bolt to make it look right. The u bolt doesn't got past the nylon lock nuts.

Do I remember correctly, that the Happy-Trails Dakar Radiator guards use a 'Beveled' (1 pic looks tapered) bracket like that with 6mm bolt holes?

It did have the HT Nerf bars road pegs on, I dumped the bike off road, bent the nerf bars trashed them and the bottom bar is still there because I need a new mount and actual crash bars. Photos were taken before I really had gear, so I used a jacket for protection. lol
