Cylinder head oil leak
« on: April 24, 2015, 07:21:03 pm »
Good day all DRZ400E dawgs. I got back from my Baviaans ride and saw the whole leftside of my riding pants whet with oil up to my knee  >:( , this must have happened just a couple km before I got home.
One quick look reveled the problem there was a hole in the head  :eek7:
In the picture is the hole, the big one. So please tell me what its for and do I need to get the part that came out there or can I just block the hole.
I suspect the hole  is for the purpose of a de-compresor when a kick start is fitted.

I think I have this part for you,I will look in my spares draw.

there is also a locking bolt on the front of the head that keeps this in place.
