    help with oil leak...

    My bike is leaking oil. It is covering every where as it gets blown around a fair amount. The highsest point I can see is the gasket just below the exhaust manifold. I just had a tune-up a while ago and they had all the top end of the engine apart to take care of some spark plug problem and to do a valve adjustment. Could this leak be caused from not tightening everything down enough or is a gasket actually shot. If so how much do you think it's gonna cost..... Every time I get something fixed another seems to be wrong......

    Blade's got the answer. The shop is responsible for your leak.

    That's the head gasket leaking and that is not a small issue. Deal with it soon and do not ride hard until it's done.
    A backyard mechanic without a service manual is just like a hooker without a lamp pole.... they are both in the dark.
