    H if my intake gasket on my motorized bike was leaking would the rpm go up or go down because mine started to die and has less pick up.


    thanks

    Take the intake apart and throw some rtv on the intake then seal it back up.

    Ok will get on that, cylon I opened up the carb and the choke lever was really really loose, it was pratically dangling around. Could that have been the problem of my bike loosing power and died g and also the grinding sound when I raise the rpm. Thanks

    Do not use rtv. It is not gas or oil proof and has a very low resistance to heat.

    Idk about that butterbean I just removed my intake tonight to change jet sizes and the rtv is holding up very well, it is not removed with the gas easily. When I pulled it apart for the new seal I had to scrub it with gas to remove it then remake the seal once you tighten the seal it, it makes a tight seam that stops the gas from touching to much of the rtv anyways. All the rtv really does it seals up any gaps in case of a air leak anyways, it does work, if you dont believe me try it.

    does anyone know why oil leaks out of my muffler gasket. Also I was just wondering for the future, does oil have to leake out of all head leaks.

    Make sure the gasket is undamaged and that the muffler flange is smooth mine was leaking too but the stud was stripped whatever you do dont over tighten it.
