hi guys, bit of a problem with my bike, its a 2013 300 exc it has 22hrs on it, its only 5 months old, went in garage today to find a puddle under the bike, it was coolant!!
i filled up the coolant and started it up, to find it coming from the inner clutch cover gasket at the front of the engine just where the water pump bolts go through, it looks like the gasket has been pushed out, i also had this problem on my 2011 300, which i bought from new, that blew the gasket about 4/5 months old and in the 2 and a half years i owned it i replaced the gasket 4 times!!
any one else has this problem, i rang by dealer (for both bikes) and they said they've never heard of it, heres some pics
you can see the gasket has torn outwards just by the engine/frame bolt
surley it cant just be me this has happened too, i know plenty of people with 250/300 ktm's and husabergs who havnt had a problem though, just seems odd for a 5 month old bike to do this
any help would be appreciated
