Oil under left front carby

Post by grandalf » Sat Nov 03, 2018 4:31 pm



Hi there, im suddenly experiencing after the days ride, oil and quite alot at times, under the left front carby bowl. (externally sitting on bottom of it).
Is this to do with my rings/valves possibly? its not happening under other carbys tho. rather odd how this could get there tho.
mm, im wondering has this happened to anyone else. It does use a bit of oil nowdays, and this was something i was doing sooner than later.
I cant see any oil leaking from motor case either. Could it be coming thu airbox causing this on these models when its got old?
thx

Is it actually on the bowl or under it on top of the case?

The oil is on the bottom of the bowl on the underneath of it. Not on the case no. Sometimes i have had fuel there as well.

Is your oil breather hose hooked up to your airbox? If it is loose that may leave oil there. Just a guess.

I think it's probably a fuel leak, just a seep and it dries up and looks like oil. Nothing else makes sense.
