Recently I've noticed oil collecting on the front and underneath the right cylinder of my '75 R75/6. I'm not positive, but it seems as though it's coming from where the exhaust comes out of the cylinder. This seems like an odd place for oil to be coming from and has me concerned as to whether this has a specific meaning.
Obviously, the bike needs some work, as it seems to have oil leaks from many different parts of the engine. However, because I ride this bike significantly less, I have been putting off any major work, as it stilll runs fine for my commute and around home. I know I have to keep an eye on the oil level, but am unsure how much oil I go through. I want to say I have to add maybe a quart for every 1000 miles, but that's just a guess. Does that sound excessive?
Anyways, if anyone has an idea of what may be going on with the oil around the exhaust base, I would appreciate your input.
Thanks in advance.
