View Full Version : Oil leak

Over a year ago I replaced the stator on my Virago 1100. When I put the cover back on I used the old gasket and it leaked. I bought a new gasket and it leaked. I then reinstalled the new gasket with honda-bond and I stripped threads on two holes so it leaked.... I retapped the threads and used RTV with no paper gasket and it leaked. I tried again with a new RTV gasket... and it leaked (although now in a different spot).


Should I just continue to carry oil on me or does anyone have advice on how to make a gasket that won't leak?

The cover may be warped, or try two gaskets.
