gasket

  1. Engine Discussion
    Good afternoon, I recently rebuilt the engine after changing the shifter drum and everything started ok but my biggest fear was realized, there was a significant oil leak coming from the tach cover on the left side (not cable side). I changed the gasket twice and can not torque the bolts...

    I just put some Permatex Ultra Black gasket maker on right side engine panel of my 82' nighthawk 450, as the old gasket was falling apart and leaking oil. I've put the panel on now and am letting the gasket cure. How long should I wait to put in oil/start up the bike? I'm dying to ride it, as...

    Yesterday after taking apart my front brake, It was obvious I was going to need a new gasket. The usual sites were out of stock or did not carry the item. So, I asked a specialty gasket vendor if they made the gasket. They didn't. However they asked me to provide a image/scan of the gasket...

    Hiya folks! I think I'm finally narrowing down my fuel issues in my CB200. I've been fighting with it fouling out plugs lately, and I hardly get the chance to put any miles on it. I've pulled the carburetors off again (I rebuilt them the beginning of this year) to go over them again and make...

    Hey everyone, just getting some things in order for the upcoming season and haven't really had a chance to go over the bike much since I got it late last fall. When changing out the air filter, I noticed the upper gasket (part # GASKET - 17219-447-000) was pinched in two spots and now garbage...

    Hi there, It has been ages since I posted here, but I'm pretty stumped on something. I have oil leaks from the oil cover (major ones), crankcase cover, kickstart lever, and the cam box. I pulled the old rubber gasket from the oil cover* and replaced it with a fiber one I bought online. I was...

    Wrapping up a cam chain replacement on my 73 CB450 and realized one of the guide pin cutouts in the cylinder head gasket isnt big enough. Looking around at dime city and 4into1, im pretty sure this is the correct commercially available gasket. Can I cut the hole bigger or am I missing something...

    I've made some oil pump gaskets before using a paper bag and High Tack Gasket Sealant before and I suppose it worked well enough but this time I've happened across some NOS gaskets. My question is whether or not to apply any kind of goo to the gasket or not? Another question I was wondering...

    Hi all, I’m looking for some help. I'm trying to find the right part for a 1978 CB400TII. I hope this is the appropriate form section for exhaust questions. When I purchased the bike, the PO talked me through the work that he had done already, and the things he hadn't gotten to. He mentioned...

    Does anybody have a cb100 case gasket they could measure the thickness of for me? Thanks!
  11. Engine Discussion
    Hey guys, I've had a small oil leak out of the front right corner of the clutch side cover. It was pretty consistent (about one drip every minute, and dripped more when engine was running), so I opened up the cover this morning to see if the gasket was torn or if there was a nick in the case...

    I have a '76 CB550T. It has a small oil leak from the left side head gasket. I thought I'd maybe pull the engine out and rebuild it for the spring, but I can't find anywhere to get the parts. Can anyone tell me where I can get the parts I need for a rebuild? Gaskets, piston rings, ect. I was...
