he's talking about the two screw-like caps in the pulse cover. these plugs are use to give access to the crank and some marking to do a proper valve adjustment (you manually spin the crank to expose appropriate valve buckets).
to the OP:
Unscrew the two caps (they have threads) and make sure there is no sand in them, maybe change the little rubber o-rings, re tighten. good luck
Do you know if the bike has ever been dropped on that side? I saw one once where there was a hairline crack near the plug and you could only see it in direct sunlight. It leaked oil thru that small crack.
One of my good friends is a master Kawasaki tech and he told me that it has just been discovered that the timing plugs were not sufficiently tightened at the factory. Just tighten them up and see if they stop leaking. If that does not work replace the o-rings. Kawasaki has not issued a recall but they have instructed all Kawasaki techs to tighten the plugs when working on these bikes.
this is the 3rd time in just a few days a Newbie posted technical stuff in the ZX10R section and have to move to the proper Forum....please get to know the site before starting Threads....nice guy stuff is over right now No free passes.... you will get an Infraction on this site for tracking purposes.

ok well I took the plug out put new o rings in and its still leaking very embarrassing I boogered the plug up I've took it out and in so much so I'm thinking now I need to order the plug and o rings oem where can I get them besides dealership the o rings I was using come from advanced auto part's lol dont think they fit perfect
Hello, what do folks recommend for a bolt-on full front brake system replacement for a 2007 zx10r (including model/year for the parts)? (better braking and low maintenance + bolt on)
Reason: my 2007 zx10r front brake system recently started to get extremely soft when bike sits for a few...
I haven't been on here much lately, but i need some help. This has probably already been covered, but my search didn't yield what I'm asking.
I bought a front triple tree stand for obvious reasons, but it pushes up on my fairings under my light? It's a venom. I'm 99% sure I'm doing it right...
So my gen 2 ZX10R is only running on cylinders 2 & 4. I’ve tried switch 1 & 3 coils to 2 & 4 with no change. Did the same thing with spark plugs, same result. Getting power to all coils & injectors. Someone else on the forum had this same issue and remedied it with a new ECM(second hand). So a...
