2006 oil filter cover leaking

Recommended Posts

Hi, this is a new bike to me. Changing the oil filter for the first time. After replacing cover I get a small drip coming out of the cover.

The o-ring is still there, but I noticed that it looked like some high temp gasket silicone was also used from the previous owner.

If I buy a new o-ring will this fix my issue or it is necessary to use some high temp gasket sealer.

Wondering if this is a common issue, can't find much on it.

Buy a new o-ring and make sure the surfaces are clean.

 

You shouldn't need to use any silicone sealant and I would avoid doing so.   You don't want that floating around where it should not be if a chunk happens to break off and your filter by-pass kicks in.

 

Jim.
