    Hi all I'm new here but as of recently o have a Yamaha xs400 dohc model in the collection. Beautiful bike and without any issues up until yesterday.

    For some reason it got moved by a towing company from my usual spot whiles I was away but buts not the important point.

    I got it now and all of a sudden it has issues. First one is the fact that it starts fine but after about 10 min the engine stops for some reason and I need to wait for it to cool down.

    Additionally it would appear there is some small amount of oil dripping from the middle of the crank case on the bottom (photos attached) and I have not seen that before. Since I haven't really inspected it that much before do you know why this is and what is that hole in the case for ?
