Any great mechanics in sugarland?

I've got an 04 GSX-R 600 that has an oil leak that is getting out of control. I'd like to take the bike to Tim but he's pretty far away from me and I don't have a truck to transport. I am forced to look locally but it could be a good thing to find someone near by. If y'all know anyone good around my area, go ahead and drop their info so I can check em out. 59 and highway 6 is my neck of the woods. Thanks a lot everyone!

I believe there are two leaks because two spots keep showing up. One is coming out of the bottom bolt of the stator which leads me to believe that there is a bad gasket or when the previouse owner changed out the stator cover, which they did because it's the newest thing on the bike, they didn't follow the proper procedure. The second leak is coming from somewhere by the rear break. I would have to remove the plastics to see where that one is coming from.

it could be at the same location but oil just travel back there. take the stator off and put new gasket in or sealant. My old r6 back then had the same problem. After I sealed it off, I left it alone for a whole day then put oil back in. Never had another oil leak.

Thanks a lot everyone! Here is my update. At 7 o'clock this morning I took both side fairings off. I wiped off the oil and decided to let it sit to see exactly where the leak was coming from. It is just one leak from the stator. I called AJ Foyt and asked for a new gasket. They didn't have it but they called their other store near galveston and they had the part. They are bringing it to their store today an it should be there at around 4. I'm gonna give it a go and try to replace it myself. Now the new question. I need someone to help me out and explain the procedure of everything I should do to replace that gasket. Please explain it like your talking to a fifth grader. I had some experience changing it out on my 02 but I really want to get this right. I appreciate all of everyones help and just need this last thing. Having a bike is one of the only personal joys I get with all of my time going towards work and my daughter and wife. I not only enjoy riding it, but I also enjoy tinkering with them. So changing this gasket out is something I want to do. Get some grease under my nails and enjoy a beer after it, cause beers taste so much better after you've accomplished something. Makes me feel like I earned it. Can't wait to here some good instructions. Once again thanks!

If you want to do it yourself, I would suggest getting a clymer book or dealership repair book(<--pricey$$). read up on your bike learn about the whole break down of the bike itself. Im sure someone will help you out too. I would help you out anytime but my work schedule is packed, and im from way up north(Conroe), If you have any questions I ill be glad to help you over the phone (915 525 2684) (caligonetx) is a tech also if you want to pm him he's pretty cool he can help you out also

Find a free DL of the book. The one for my bike retailed at 100.00. I downloaded it and printed it at work fo free.
Also, beer taste the best while your working on the bike. I bought a kegerator for the garage, so Im an expert on the matter.

Having no patience is my biggest downfall. I started at it but I always end up struggling to get the cover off. This magnet won't get the best of me. What's a good way to get this cover off? 713-452-0848. Feel free to call, I'm pulling an all nighter. Ill post whenever the gasket is on.

Great success! New gasket is on! Waiting till tommorow to put the new oil in. Then it's go time all afternoon. I forgot about all of the oil that comes out. Good size spill but everything is fine. Thanks everyone for all of your input. This forum never ceases to amaze me with the quality of it's characters. Justin is awesome for a truck, ddgtomahawk is awesome for offering his service and to come out! And everyone else had such great input. Ride safe.
