leaking clutch cover

Recommended Posts

hi all,

so I have a semi auto clutch kit on my 08 klx110. I think its from TBparts.

The clutch cover gasket leaks. I know I put it in properly…. Wondering what most people do with these…. Should I put a thin coat of rtv on the new gasket im about to put on it?

Also, it leaks at the oil level viewing window too… anybody know where I cant get a new one, and any install tricks so it doesn’t leak?

Thanks in advance!

Make sure the gasket and both surfaces are completely dry of oil while installing the gasket.

yes, thats what i usually do. are you saying to do that without any rtv?

Yes, gasket maker is not always the solution right away. It's more of a last resort.

Not true. I've used gasket maker on everything in my engine from the crank case halves to the top end gaskets and it works way better than any paper gaskets ive used. Yes regular gaskets can be installed without problems but a LITTLE gasket maker on each side helps as well. Don't need to go crazy on it.
