Some fluid leaking from a cover
« on: August 13, 2018, 03:41:21 AM »
Here is a pic of a Trex cover on the bike. The cover is located to the right and above of the water pump. See the bottom right bolt area and bottom left bolt area? I have fluid leaking from those 2 bolt areas. And its spraying on the hose leading to the water pump, on the right outer water pump cover that has a trex protector and on the lower trex oil cover. The bolts are torqued to spec. However i did have to remove the trex cover twice before and i also remover the bolts originally to install the cover and some fluid seeped out. I checked the micro fiche and saw that there was a gasket for the oil cover. Both covers were on the same page on the micro fiche but I didnt see a gasket for the cover that is leaking. I think its the cam cover? There was no name for the cover on the micro fiche either.

Is there a gasket that goes behind my leaking cover which i need to replace? Or is there silicone gasket sealer that i would need to scrape off and replace?

No one responded but my suspicion is long bolts that have not tightened well. Otherwise if it was not seeping/spraying before, it shouldn't have done so after the case cover install.

I had an issue with that particular t-rex cover not seating properly no matter what I (or eventually my dealer) did and leaking like that.  You can scrape off the gasket and try resealing it.  It's been awhile but I think I used a tube of silicone gasket material as I don't remember there being a produced gasket for the cover.  I ended up having to toss that one case protector in the end after over torquing and having my dealer retap the threads.  but if you had it on for a while before you removed the bolts then it's probably just the gasket.

Just add a few washers and it should seal.

I had the same issue when I fit R&G race covers that were torqued to their spec, I gave them another very small turn and the problem stopped.

Not sure if I understand the issue, but I used GBRacing covers since the 1) looked cool  :062:, and 2) you only use a couple of screws to install so its not necessary to remove the engine parts and thus don't need to muck around with gaskets etc.

These covers go over, so no question of dealing with gaskets

they do go over the cover, but you first have to remove 6 of the 8 bolts that hold the cover on and replace them with the supplied longer bolts.  If the gasket material is gonna develop a flaw after multiple heat cycles then that's the time.
