Kawasaki Lakota Sport wierd oil leak


Recommended Posts

My 03' Lakota sport has never been taken apart but it's leaking oil. It's on the left side of the bike and looks like maybe the gaskets are failing. It doesn't seem to leak except when I am riding, and it's not enough that I have to add more, it just makes a mess of the bike. Anyone else had this problem? Should I get it taken care of asap? It doesn't leak while parked. It doesn't leak while running. It ONLY leaks while I am riding:huh:.

check it while running and see if it isn't the shift shaft leaking, i.e., leaking around the shaft that comes thru the case and holds the shifter. It is far more common to have a seal lleak under pressure than a gasket, though it is possible. that would be an easy fix too. a gasket under pressure could be in there pretty deep I'm afraid....let us know OK?:aargh:

well clean it off and see where it is. You can buy fluorescent oil dye from a Chevy dealer. Take it for a ride then drag that old blacklight out into the garage or ride the quad into the house hahaha, whatever suits you, whatever the little woman will tolerate LOL. :no:
