    A number of Members have reported that their Crankcase bolts etc. needed "nipping up",
    as they appeared to be a little on the loose side from the factory, resulting in oil leaks.

    Cheers  :821:

    I realize this is an old thread, but preventing the leak is the idea.  Is using sealant on the new crank cover gasket recommended?

    That works for me.  Just finished valve shims, buttoning up everything now.

    Sealant is not recommended or needed on the Crankcase cover gasket,
    just make sre all the bolts are all tightened evenly to the correct Torque ( 11Nm ).

    It seems that the cause of previous leaks are due to the bolts NOT being tightened from the Factory !

    Thanks, everyone.  Buttoned up and tightened slowly with torque wrench.
