Clutch Cover Seal

Recommended Posts

The right engine cover seal is a o ring right? I'm pretty sure it is, but on the microfiche it says gasket. The picture looks like and o ring and I just want to make sure I don't tear it apart and have to buy a new gasket instead of just re using the o ring.

It's an O-ring. I've had them on and off a ton of time and I've never replaced one unless I rebuilt an engine and the kit had a new one in it. A little grease on the O-ring helps it seal as well.

watch out boyeson clutch covers use a paper gasket and sometimes finding one is a pain.. the stock o ring never needs replacing unless it leaks, was pinched or torn..

I'm just taking off the clutch cover and not the crankcase so I don't need to buy anything.

Thanks!

The Barnett clutch kit hooks up real good! Make sure the inner hub and pressure plate are in good shape. If not, the clutch won't last. I just picked up a pro-x inner hub for around $40. It seems to wear the fastest. Change the transmission oil more often. The kevlar floating around from the clutches has a tendancy to destroy bearings. Luckily, the Honda has the engine and trans oil seperated or there would be other issues.

Don't worry, I change my engine oil and trans oil every ride. Oil filter every two rides. Race weekends maybe 2 hours on each oil change MAX.

In the 250F, I change the engine oil and filter every 12 hours as the book reccommends. The trans oil every 6 because I'm also running the barnett clutches. I don't use real expensive oil in the trans but in the engine I do. He did tear the crank up after 81 hours, but at the level my kid rides, I was lucky to get that many hours out of a stock crank. Had nothing to do with the amount of time on the oil changes. The stock bearing cage on the honda crankshafts suck. Never had a problem with the pro-x rod and bearing.
