Hey Guys,
I am a little new around here. I have searched to see if had been asked before but I didnt see it. if so sorry about this but here I go.
I just bought a 1982 wing GLI 1100 It wouldnt start when I got it.I had been sitting in a garage for the last FIVE years.I was able to get it running I changed the fluids and I have rode a few times but now that I changed the oil castrol (10/w40) I am getting a leak coming from what looks like a weap hole on the bottom of the engine about four or so inches back from what I am quessing is the water pump.does anyone have any clues about this

May sound dumb but... Does you bike have a crush washer on the drain plug? If so did you replace it. Sometimes you will get a few drops from the plug if you don't.

Oil leaks can be difficult to pinpoint their origin. Try this: put the bike onthe centre stand, and get underneath with some clean shoprags and a bit of solvent and clean and dry the whole underside of the engine. Then over a period of time check to see where the oil is coming from (I did this with an atv that was seeping; turned out to be the engine case seal!). If it's starts at the drain plug then the crush washer is likely the culprit (it's recommended to replace them at each change) or it isn't uncommon for plugs being over torqued and stripped to some extent.
