Hi Gunter, This oil leak is likely what made the guy sell it. I don't know for sure if it's a common problem. But you have your work cut out for you. Trying to figure out what is the problem on-line is a hard thing to do. All I can say is, Everything must be checked. My gut feeling is that since it is an early model clutch type, Your bike need's a burnout bracket. I'd call the factory to see if your bike needs one. Also start checking the gear box and bell housing for cracks or bearing wear. Hopefully it's just a seal. And the burnout bracket will fix the problem and keep it all lined up straight. Good Luck

Carb Mike,

What exactly is a burnout bracket??? :oops:

Will it benefit my 98 clutch bike even though I am not having any seal leaks???


Thanks for educating me. :idea:

Hi Hossman, Your bike may already have this bracket. I'm not sure what year it came out.

In the past on the BHRA site we had a guy who could not get his belt to line up right on an older clutch bike. We all gave him our best advice. But it still eat belts. Come to find out, his bell housing was cracked. He talked to Mark at the Factory, and Mark set him up with this so called burnout bracket.

I believe it's on the left side of the bell housing. Bolted from the back of the bell housing to the side of the tranny.
