clutch cover gasket chewed up

Recommended Posts

11 350sxf.... so i poked a hole in the clutch cover then when i installed the new one i got sloppy with the gasket. Half of the gasket fell inside the clutch and chewed it in to a million pieces. Maybe 6 inches of gasket gone into the bike. I retrieved maybe 2 inches total through the filter and oil. What do i do? the dealer is concerned with plugging an oil jet. I kind of think splitting the cases is the best option. the bike was running funny and acted like a fuel pump was going out(shutting off in corners) and it sounded like the cam chain tensioner was getting noisy.

I would definately split them and clean and inspect everything. All it takes is a little piece to clog an oil passage and starve the motor.
