+1. And if not some Permatex Gray or Black will do.Scott
DO NOT reuse the right side case gasket - and DO NOT put silly putty on it. It has oil passages that can get clogged with sealer - or lose pressure due to a poor seal ..... just get one. They're cheap compared to a trashed engine ...... Just sayin' ......
Sorry, I take for granted that I know how to avoid those problems. I forget not everyone does.Scott
Here is the rest of the fix....looks like Bare only copied one picture from my old post.http://www.enfieldmotorcycles.com/forum/index.php/topic,14575.msg154863.html#msg154863
... I think this is the last effort I will make with this bike, or any bike. I can't break down every 400 miles. That's part of the reason the Vespa went. Even under warranty you get tired of being stuck or not able to ride for one reason or another. Looks like only the Japanese can make dependable bikes, soulless as they are...
This shouldn't be happening.
I agree as well with GHG and JVS. My C5 has fortunately been very reliable. The washers are not required for these bikes....it was simply a little adjustment to tighten up the shifting in my bike.....driven primarily by a need to tinker rather than a design flaw!It does appear that there is something wrong with your parts. Hopefully you can get your bike fixed soon and go back to having fun instead of having to deal with these issues. I would second the recommendation to get this checked by someone who is comfortable with RE repairs. Wishing you all the best.GSS
And when I did talk to the dealer they made it sound like a rather big deal to this tinkering you are talking about. Like large amounts of labour for a breakdown. You can imagine why I am a bit hesitant to embark on that one quite yet.
