    General Motorcycle Discussion
    I'm wondering what might be the root cause of oil blowing out of my cam cover breather on my 1978 Honda CB400 Hawk II. The bike runs fine and I just have to put oil in it from time-to-time. I assumed that there was some sort of vacuum created with the old air box. But I've removed the oil air...

    Hey all! New to riding. Just picked up my first bike a few weeks ago - a 1975 Honda CB 125s. Took it in for a look over and the mechanic said it is in great shape. I'm attempting to learn as I go regarding repairs but could use some help at the moment. I have a small oil leak (one or two...

  6. VN750 oil leaking from the exhaust port

    Motorcycle Repair
    Laid the bike down into a ditch going too fast around a turn... Rode it back home after some difficulty keeping her running. Ended up having to open the idle screw all the way or she would suddenly drop RPMs and stall. After a less than perfect ride home I took a closer look and found oil...

  10. 1983 Silverwing 650 Engine Case - Please advise

    My room mate recently bought a '83 Honda Silverwing. It had these 'riding pedals' installed and they were bolted to what looks like the engine case. I'm new to bikes so the proper terminology eludes me. Anyway, the bolted pedals hit the curb and pulled off a small piece of the 'engine case'...
  11. New (to me) 81 XS650 with leak

    I just bought this 81 XS605 spec. I notice when it's on the side peg it leaks oil from the leaning side about where the peg is mounted (No I haven't looked it over yet) but it does not leak when it's on the center stand. Anyone with a XS have the same problem for a quick fix? I want to start...
