Okay to run with leaky power valve cover?

Recommended Posts

I know we kind of already been over this but are you guys sure it's okay to run with the Leaky power valvecover I can just wait until I do my next top in to do it or should I pull the motor and put the seal in I have the seal for it.

Few things:

1) You can wait for the next top end.

  • But you could wear the hole oval in the process, and need to have a bushing put in.

2) You could replace it now.

  • But it's a lot harder to do on the bike without removing the jug.

3) The problem with either is it will eventually, if not sooner get worse.

Ok thanks. Maybe I'll just pull the motor and replace the seal in the next 4 hrs of riding time.
