I snapped the clutch copression lever on my '01 929, which goes down into the right side crackcase and engages the clutch. Not even sure how or why this happened. :eek: So I had to take off the cover to get out the second piece. And then when I pieced it back together, there was still some small section missing. So I had to then drop the oil pan to get the rest out....
But with any case, I need to put the oil pan and case cover back on, but there is not a gasket available. It appears there is a very small amount of silicone on there, but when i asked the parts guy he thought it is a metal to metal seal and that silicone with cause it to leak. Does anyone know for sure which is correct??
Thanks in advance...
Chris

There is a reason that guy is a parts guy, not a mechanic. Use HondaBond on the surfaces.
Oh, and that arm was recalled on the 929. Did yours ever get the initial repair?

Thanks BDA... he actually did mention that it might use HondaBond, but was going to ask service, which was closed, and let me know when I picked the part up.. In any case, he is still a tool... I can just tell... LoL
I bought the bike used, so not sure if it was replaced in the recall.... I doubt it tho... I knew something was wrong with the original style cause I called with part # to the dealer, and they said they didnt have that, but one almost identical... my # ended in 000, and the one they had was # 010, so figured it was updated....

Is there any special way to re-install the arm?? I just figured I would go into it blind and try to figure it out, which usually works... But figured id ask since I found this great forum :thumb:

Neither the oil pan or clutch cover use a gasket. Just make sure the surfaces are clean and apply the sealant accordingly. Use a crisscross pattern when tightening the bolts on both.
