thanks for all the responses guys. it has really helped to turn down the initial panic. this is my first bike Ive personally owned and research told me theyre strong with basic maintenance. i put pretty much put all my money into acquiring it and the engine leaking really had me worried because the mx shops here are EXPENSIVE. but as i mentioned my boys talked to me and assured me theyd help me out. so going up there today and will update on what we find. its a serious relief that theres still an active community in this forum.

BusaHusa no need for panic no For you it will be a matter of doing some maintenance and learning you bike. Any questions what so ever just google search this forum or ask in this thread.

I hear you I don't mind arguments! I will not try to defend the idea about seizing rocker arms as I might have misunderstood, but I have seen signs on the axles. And that makes sense as oil is needed between the axles and the rockers and the oil path up to the head is probably the longest path.

My story: I forgot to fill oil after I got distracted by two friends (I made a mental note but that didn't stick...). The next day was cold and I had also installed a manual cam chain tensioner the day before so I didn't react to the empty sound and the cam chain wasn't rattling.... I took the bike to the enduro track on the highway doing 110 km/h. Did one lap in about 1 hour and took gravel roads home for about 2-3 hours. Came home, washed the bike and went to bed. Next day I woke up with panic as my brain suddenly realized!! Put some oil in the engine and it started fine. Changed oil when warm and had no signs of metal or bad behaviour. Later on I opened up the engine and the only signs I had was on the rocker arm axles. The little oil left in the engine was probably enough to squirt around the piston but not enough to get enough to the top? I use motorex 10W60 which is very thick and that might have helped? I was amazed that the engine could survive that!
This is not to hi-jack this thread but it might help HusaBusa to relax regarding a lower oil level

Talking

okay guys. small update. so the bike not starting was due to when i let my friend ride it, (im guessing) when he popped a wheelie he mightve put it down rough and the starter n killswitch plug got disconnected. found it and replugged it, she fired right up. YAY

Second thing. The oil leak. from research ive done im hoping what happened is they overfilled it with oil and its escaping through the air box (from what ive read). theres only one oil sight glass that i see (the engine cover was replaced with a rekluse one). it is the long vertical cylinder one. from what ive read that should be showing just over half full or max 1cm from the top of glass. if that is the correct reading then i believe there is actually too much oil and thats likely the issue (hopefully?).

for right now im ordering a few parts: ignition switch, b20ad led bulb (h6 i think?), kickstand

and of course safety first: mx9 mips helmet, gloves, ohmotor full body armor, goggles. for now

cash is stretched thin now BUT everything looks promising.
until i can do a proper service (bearings, filter, oil etc etc) i just baby her around my town when i need to go out.

i will definitely be back to update and ask more questions and when i get another phone ill upload pictures!

thanks for all the help and advice so far everyone

Update: Bike is actually an FX450 with the headlights n tail.

1st issue: There is a small oil leak when she's parked, I'm guessing it seems to be from the leftside of the case? Heard that was a somewhat common problem with an easy replacement part fix (maybe slave cylinder or water pump? idk).

2nd issue: The clutch doesn't completely disengage when pulled in, so if im not on the brake it will move forward, and even more so if its revvd (duh? lol).

Any insight into these issues?

Currently just getting maintenance parts: filters, oils, coolants, fork guards until my mechanic looks her over.

Ill likely make individual posts for these issues soon. Thanks

Counter shaft sprocket seals maybe. Also might be time to replace the clutch. But first bleed the clutch if it looks low. Their are 4 fuel filters 2 in the tank. Not bad idea to get fuel sock it go in at fill neck. 1 oil filter and 2 screens. Screens can be cleaned.

It might be an over-oiled air filter too. ask me how i know. heh.

That could be the normal state of these bikes. On my bike and at least some others the clutch is quite tight. It does drag, especially when the bike is cold. So it's considered normal as far as I know - to some degree. I've completely gotten used to this effect in mine. Lightly cover the brake when coming to a stop, unconsciously pop it into neutral at the right time when you're allllmost stopped. The grabbiness might also be something you can adjust on the lever?, I don't know – or it might be alleviated by some sort of maintenance on the clutch itself if it's bad? idk!

possibly the counter shaft as you said, or the clutch slave cylinder. The bike came with a fuel filter at the fill neck already. I plan to do a full flush (minus the brakes, brakes seem fine). Was going to do it today then realized I'd have to pull the skidplate off and didnt think I had enough time.

as for the clutch...possibly. according to the endurance II on it, the bike has over 99 hrs and 2400 miles. thing is it already has a rekluse cover so im assuming the clutch was redone before, maybe its time again now but I'm hesitant to open the case. Kinda like, if it aint broke dont fix it. At the same time I want her to last though, but cash is tight right now.

Today though, I noticed a leak on one of the right side rad hoses (sigh) during a ride. so thats going to have to be replaced.

Strangely enough, the last couple days the bike hasn't been leaking any oil, which is both pleasing and worrying at the same time.

hmm..over-oiled filter. MAYBE, because as I said, there has been no leaking for the last couple days, which i find odd.

as for the clutch grabbing, i dont think thats normal state on any bike. Its already caused me to drop her (walking speed) as i couldn't reach the rear brake in time and the front was in a patch of sand on smooth concrete that was on an angle so the front slipped out.

I do think its time for some clutch work though.
Thanks from tourist
