Oil leaking out exhaust flange

Noticed oil leaking from my exhaust flange so i took the two exhaust flange bolts out and noticed that it was actually leaking from the actual bolt holes that holds the flange and exhaust to the head. started it up with the exhaust off of the bike and it spit out oil like a son of a gun. is there supposed to be an oil passage somwhere in there and i just dont have a good seal with the two exhaust flange bolts?

the battery terminal being loose would cause that, since the rectifier would freak out. the leak you speak of is probably not eh head gasket ro you would have compression problem with amount of oil that can run down the bike. It sounds like a corner on the valve cover gasket or something I think there is a cover for the valve adjust ment there so check it out the gasket may be worn. no biggie get a new one.
help this helps

This may help.


Hey Daryl,

This sounds a little scary...

.. Seems as though you may have cracked the head deep enough to get into the actual internal cavity..OR the threads and their pilot hole went too deep into the head and got into the internal cavity..

ANYWAY.. its time to do some "exploring".. do not crank the bike again until you get the help of a qualified professional!!

LG Xnon GR500 Cell Phone, Display Not fuctioning properly. 1/3 of the display is showing normally. 1/3 is showing vertical colored lines down one side of the area. 1/3 of the screen is black. \r\n The display was normal 40 min before the malfuction. The phone was in a protective plastic hard case and in a lether belt case. Have there been any simular reports of issues. The phone has always had an intermitent display malfuction, where the display is inverte top-to- bottom and reversed in the text, to read right-to- left, and the screen is split in half to double the (mirrored) display. Corrected by turning the phone off and reseating the battery, then turing the phone on again. ATT "no-service" wanted to term it damaged by neglegence and wanted to charge hundreds of dollor's before checking the unit. Has any one experience simuliar display issiue? Is there another way to address the issue besides the one ATT is offering.
