    Clutch Cover

    Well tonight I took off my clutch cover that I tried to seal when I picked up the TLS and as I thought it looks warped between the bolt holes.....

    I'm waiting for Vandriver to come back to me about a billet cover but getting desperate.
    Is it worth buying a new later model cover or will I be looking at the same leaking problems again.

    Just finished a top yoke/renthal conversion and I'm getting desperate to get out on it.

    push out the sleeves in the bolt holes and file 3/4 mm off them

    rub the cover on a sheet of 120grit wet and dry on a flat surface till its flat.

    push the sleeves back in and put 6mm ID washers under the bolts

    run gasket sealant around the Oring.

    tighten till the bolts are snug.

    I did the sleeves when I originally tried to fix the leak but I will give the wet and dry a go.
    There will be a canny bit to sand down to get it flat but its scrap if I don't give it a try.

    Like Stu said the washers are key. That distributes the torque. The newer covers have flared inserts that mimic the washer solution.

    sanded the cover and it looks a lot better just need to fit it with the new gasket.
    What about preferences when fitting the new o ring gasket?
    The manual says coat the o ring in grease but I have read on here clean faces and also oil the o ring.
    If its grease as per the manual surely any high temp grease would work (copper slip?)

    copper slip not the best idea in an aluminium engine. corrode one another.
    a non setting sealant is the best bet, sparingly applied
