XJ600N oil leak


Recommended Posts

My 600n 1997 is leaking from a tube near the centre stand, I topped up the oil on Sunday. It was just below upper level marker when I had finished. Took it out a run and filled up with petrol. When I went to leave the petrol station there was a large amount of oil under the bike. Now 3 days later it is still coming out, and the window shows only half full of oil. Any one shed some light on this for me.

Thanks Paul

Hi Paul

Are you sure that it's oil. That's what I thought with my '97 600S - coming from a little pipe that hangs down on the right hand side near the centre stand. That's the air cleaner drain hose. I was advised to take off the air cleaner and thoroughly clean it all out, including the drain hose and that little filter thing that sits half way down it.

Hope this helps
