Hey everyone,

Noticed my Z was leaking oil today.. Went and inspected and saw that the exhaust valve cover was cracked! WTF? Has anyone had this happen to them? I had my valves checked at 1000 by a dealership over a year ago and that would be the last time that was touched.

I'm only at 2900 miles now, and don't track or stunt my bike. I let it warm up for 30 seconds before riding, do maintenance, oil changes regularly.

Attached is pic of exhaust valve cover (cracked, oily, grimy) and a pic of the intake cover (what it should look like)

Gotta ask ... did you already loosen the bottom bolt , looks like a gap on the pic' . could be why its leaking.
.
So of course , check it , tighten it , clean it , start it ,
check if its leaking from the bad casting area . or the o-ring for the cap might broke/bad ,
.
With the bad casting area (or whatever it is) it should not be there and Should be under warranty so I'd replace it ;)
