How to change the Head gasket - August 19, 2009, 03:45 PM

Hello Guys,

I am a newbie and i just found out that Oil is leaking from the right side of my 2003 Yamaha R6.(i have circled the exact location of the problem in the picture attached below in yellow.) After talking to couple of my friends i came to know that its the head gasket that is broken and needs to be replaced Can anybody help me with how to fix this thing and is it easy to replace that or do i need some experienced mechanic to do that since it needs lots of things to be taken out.

Please advise.

Thanks[IMG]file:///C:/Documents%20and%20Settings/jsura/Desktop/midscrews.jpg[/IMG]

looks like the valve cover gasket to me, you can do it yourself, I'm sure that you can find a how-to or the manual online


...after removal:

Easy fix.

It's the valve cover gasket not a head gasket. You can buy a new one for like $40 or something. Takes a couple hours to do it. Make sure you clen both surfaces (the top of the head and the edge of the valve cover before you put the new one on.


God Speed Jeff! You'll never be forgotten.
