  • Powervalue drain

    Quick question, the day before i flew out.. i took my bike for 2 little rides.. after both times there seemed to be a few drips of very dark staining oil. dripping down what seemed to be the inside of the fairings.. right ride of bike when sitting on it.

    Didn't get time to take the fairing off as i had to fly out, planning on taking them off as soon as i get back to Perth.

    I checked the oil reservoir it didn't seem to be leaking anything over night. the drips didn't seem to continue either just the initial ones after each ride.

    Do you think it could be the power value drain bottle overfilled and leaking out?

    How often do they normally need to be drained so i can keep an eye on it in future?

    And yes i do realise i wrote powervalue instead of Power valve before desmo sparks in!

        ^^ whs

        exhaust gaskets are a bit of a pain in the arse to get to seal properly...
        “Crashing is shit for you, shit for the bike, shit for the mechanics and shit for the set-up,” Checa told me a while back. “It’s a signal that you are heading in the wrong direction. You want to win but crashing is the opposite. It’s like being in France when you want to go to England and when you crash you go to Spain. That way you’ll never get to England!” -- Carlos Checa

          Just saw this thread. The drain bottle had a 4mm hole on it so if the level starts getting high you'll need to empty it out.

          Re: exhaust leaks, in that bag I gave you with bits, there are some brand new exhaust o-rings that I hadn't had a chance to fit. They will sort out any exhaust leaks and make a tight seal when fitted correctly. They are viton hi temp items with precise diameters to suit those pipes. Let me know if u need a hand fitting them.
