toivias was also right. it was a fight to persuade the old man.
I personally think that someone who installs the plug this way should reconsider if he is the right man in the right place, if it was a mechanic. and as the bike owner I would be very nervous about what else can be screwed inside the engine. I have an iscription on my plug. it says that the previous owner is a dick. it is very decorative according to my opinion

I was saying exactly the same on the other day to a friend. If he managed to screw it up on this cover, I can only imagine how bad the rest of the engine might be as he was the one to change piston/cylinder/bearings...

need help guys
Today I was practicing some wheelies and found some oil on left engine cover...
Cam plug is mounted properly.
I have checked also this Should I weld this weep hole? and it looks fine.

Any ideas where should i look for leaks?

Bush as always right

Water pump gear/fan circlip and neddlerol. are completle gone... they for sure were there before this happened. How far cold they go with water - any ideas where should I look for them?

EDIT:
how bad does it look? Do I need new shaft?

that shaft looks OK, just make it smooth with some #400 paper

use a magnet to find as many metal parts as you can, (its a ball bearing not needles) many oil quick oil changes will also help.

I am not sure if You understood me - bearing is fine.
The problem is that needle (56) and circlip (54) went with water somewhere into crankcases...
I will try to get them by magnet but I am afraid I will have to separate the cases anyway to find them.

ah I see

i have used a really big neodiumum magnet moved around on the outside of the cases to find bits of gears stuck inside

so the parts are in the cooling system .. water passages around the liner ?
Thanks from toivias

my guess: the circlip is in the zylinder sleeve area and the needle in the lower hose.
I think, the circlip must fell off first, the flow up was still present. after the wheel got loose and the needle fell off, the stream was not supported by the wheel anymore. thats why I think it couldnt go so far as the circlip did. I would drain the system by disconecting the lower hose at the water pump. to get the circlip from the zylinder sleeve area I would:
take the left cover down and blow water into the place where hot coolant leaves the head. if the circlip is there, it is impossible to get it out in the other direction, because the coolant passages (head entrance) are to small. if this does not help, try to flush the radiator, if still not there, think more and if there is no other idea, split cases. if the circlip broke into halves, it can be anywhere.
