The hoses that run up to the oil take will split and leak oil on your rear tire which can make cornering very interesting. Experience talking here!! I have two of these Skorpions running and two in pieces as projects.
Thanks, Doug. Will do. The only line that "looks" bad is the breather line. I was just wondering if a crankcase split line leak was likely. I wouldn't think so, knowing Yamaha, but still.. Maybe I didn't do a good enough job of cleaning when I changed the oil and filter.
Speaking of that, once I had it running, I backed off the top screw on the oil filter housing, and a little oil oozed around the screw. I would have thought there would be a *lot* ? It's just weird, not having an oil pressure light/gauge, etc.
edit for typo..
