I have a 01 Sprint RS and i keep getting oil coming out of the bottom of it and around the outside bottom of it every time i turn off the bike. ive traced it up under the tank. no oil up there. i do think that my front sprocket seal is bad. any thoughts?
You have to remove the tank, which means you first have to remove the seat & tail section.
If you have never removed tank before (which sounds like you haven't) be very careful with the quick-disconnect fuel fittings, especially on re-installation. It's easy to break the fixed one on the fuel pump if you're not careful.
As well as disconnecting the fuel lines, you will have one electrical connector for the pump and another under the tank for the fuel sender.
Ah, OK - that explains it then.
When bike goes down on left side with motor running, oil gets sucked up the breather hose and into the airbox.
A 'bung' is a plug - it's supposed to keep any oil that drains into the hose from just spilling out, then is to be periodically drained.
It's just a press-fit piece of plastic that goes in end of hose.
