I found I had a leak at my thermostat and replaced the seal and o ring, was fine for a week but then sure enough it started leaking again. Now what? How do I stop a leak when the parts I put on to stop it in the first place are new? Anyone ever had a leak there that just won't stop?

Pull it back off and make sure that both surfaces are clean, then take a straight edge and ensure that they are flat.

If they aren't flat either get the thermostat housing machined or replace it then use a thicker gasket and some liquid gasket on both sides of your paper one, torque it down and once it is set and the bike is warm torque it down again.

I took it apart and did just that cleaned again and torqued heated then torqued again, seems to not be leaking again. It was fine for a week last time. If it happens again Ill look into getting a new thermo.

It was leaking where it mates to the block, found another hose that was seeping also while I was in there so I cut it back a little and re clamped it down. Hopefully it's all cured now.
Thanks for the input.

Did you use a liquid gasket/RTV/Hondabond?
If you didn't you should have...a light film on both metal surfaces.
