What you are saying is difficult to understand
ok im back agin with yet another question.i got on my bike yesterday warmed her up and took her for a drive.i hot to the hill at the end of my road and there is a stop sign at an incline.when taking off the bike seemed to have lost power.i stalled the bike twice before i made it.so i got on my way back home playin with it the whole way and if i had to estimate ide say like a loss of 8 to 10 hp.well then at home i noticed oil leaking from a roughly 1/4 hole on top right side of motor.ive been reading up on motors for these bike hoping to learn to fix all of it myself so i thought ide come here and see what yall thought of my diagnosis.im thinking its a spark plug gasket.but even if i am right i still have 2 questions
1 would this be somthing for me to try for my first repair?
2 this ones really got me.would one of these make the bike run off like its seeming to?
i appreciate any feedback thankyou
The description you gave is a little confusing. What MC is it (model/yr)? Is the spark plug missing? Are you seeing a gasket or just suspecting there is a gasket. If you could get a Pic of the problem area it would be helpful. Is the hole irregular shape, or uniform?
There are several preliminary checks you can perform. Check spark plug fit and torque (not loose). Check the plug itself to see if it is oil fouled. Check all plugs to assure thay are all the same brand and heat range. Check the oil level to see if the oil was over filled.
Since getting the MC have you changed the oil filter and oil? Did you do it correctly? Most older MC must be in a straight vertical position to correctly measure oil levels. Not uncommon to over fill if you had MC on side stand when filling. Have you had the air filter off?
Detail of what you have done to the MC recently will help.
Lots of possibilities, but need more clear detailed description
