Oil Leak somewhere




I'm losing oil and it seems to be going out the back side all over the shock and the brake line among other things. I can't find where it would be leaking from. Has anyone else had a problem like this?

Step 1: clean all that oil off.

Step 2: go for a short ride and look for the source of the leak during the ride.

James, I guess I missed the obvious solution there because of my laziness. Thanks though.

I doubt CCT. Way too much oïl on the rear of the shock.

That's my vote too. I left the vent line on the top of the rear cam cover loose when I reinstalled the carbs and that is where I noticed oil.
