    So I just got my whizzer back from the shop undergoing a brake replacement. I'm not very well versed in working with motorbikes so I have a little trouble assessing what is going on with my bike. Anyways, I picked it up Saturday (today is Tuesday) and after riding it home and parking it, I noticed a leak underneath it. I thought nothing of it until that night when I moved it again and the puddle was much bigger. It's a neon-ish yellow fluid leaking near the carbeurator, but could be coming from the gas tank I think?

    Any Ideas?

    If it wasn't doing this before you got back from the shop.. Bring it back, they probably caused it to leak.

    Did you stick your finger in the yellowish fluid? Smell it? Taste it? :)

    It's Oil coming out of your engine breather which is a common problem on your motor.

    Whiiiizzer!!! :D

    Smelled the fluid, didn't taste it - had a cup of coffee at the time!

    So, oil coming out of my engine breather huh... I'm going to explore around and see if I can find a schematic of the engine and hopefully not screw up anything too much.

    Any ideas if this is an easy fix?
