Left case leaking oil!!

Hello Team:

This is a 2001 Ninja ZX-6R with 9,000 miles.

Left case is leaking oil and seems like previous owner try to fix it with some black silicon.

Anyone knows what's behind this case??

Will like to remove it to do a more detailed inspection and see if using high temp red silicone will fix the leak.

Thanks.

the shape of the cover at that point suggests the location of a dowell pin.
I'd hazard a guess that there is damage is to the engine casing side.
A precision tig welder could weld it but it would then need to be cleaned up to allow the dowell!
Not a nice repair.....
Patrick at Motorcycles Unlimited should be able to help

Looks like it'll need some weld repair.
I'd recommend American Heliarc.

http://www.americanheliarc.com/

You'll need to remove the cover and bring the bike up there.

there is oil in the starer just not allot like on the clutch side,if your gana take the cover off you should get it rewelded like patrick sayd.It might not look like allot of oil now but after a while it will look really crusty under there.

I belive its the stater aka alternator spining and throwing the oil every where.

Thats the engine cases, may be a simple gasket replacement job, I see no reason for it to be cracked, the cover doesent look rashed? maybe its new, maybe the gasket just leaked and he smeared jb on it trying to stop it, I wouldnt jump to conclusions, could be very easy repair?

even if it's cracked, take the cover off, purchase a new gasket or get some 'black silicone' clean everything real nice with brake cleaner, if it's cracked on the engine, apply a small amount of jb weld on the inside and let it sit over night...then put on the new gasket or silicone and bolt it up...fill it with oil and check it out....clayton and i have fixed way worse with jb weld....like a golf ball sized hole with jb quick

a little scotch brite on the outside helps to scuff the area for better adhesion, Me and JB go way back.
