It's Hondabond HT. Make sure to prep both surfaces well and let the gasket sit for about 3 minutes before installing the part. Might want to confirm the oil leak though before doing anything.

I can tell that's where it is coming from the seal all way around looks wet. And as I ride the oil gets put back to the rear of the bike. No oil is leaking from the top of the engine. So I may have got lucky after all :)

You could, but I wouldn't. You can pick up a tube of Hondabond HT for about $10, and will have enough to seal your oil pan at least 10 times. It works pretty well on cuts too when you don't have superglue. Don't ask how I know.

If it helps when they try to rape you on the price, cost is $6.90, so it wont be too difficult to talk them down to $10 with them still making a profit. MRSP is a hair over $12.

yes, you can use others. its all rtv. i use permatex hi temp black rtv.
all you need is a small tube of rtv. it will be enough rtv for just the pan.
permatex can be found at any auto parts store or walmart.

One last thing to ask I did change the oil 400 miles ago and wanted to know if it would be a good idea to leave the filter in opposed to changing it again. Oh and I will be using a different oil amsoil to mobile1. Would like not to spend the money again for a new one.

I'd change the oil filter. With a differing brand of oil, and possible debris in the filter from the oil being overfilled, it's a bad idea to not change it out. $7 on a new filter is a small cost compared to possibly having to replace an engine. Better safe than sorry.

Purolator's are good. They also manufacture Mobile and Honda oil filters.

Thats really good to know, do you know what an high flow oil filter really does? I guess what I am asking is if it makes a difference.

High flow is just one of those marketing phrases that doesn't really mean anything. Oil flow will always be restricted when travelling through filter media, so they compensate with "special" filter media that has larger openings to allow fluid to flow better, but say it still filters the same.

I find it better to just go with a filter that is 1" longer than stock while having the called for specs, and having a tenth of a quart extra oil to keep the oil pressure correct. Hasn't let me down yet with 10,000 street miles and 1,000 track miles, with blackstone reports at every oil change with no negative side effects.

if youve changed out the filter when you did your new oil change and only done 400 mi's...
imo, you can leave it bro. i wouldnt even waste your money.
but if you want peace of mind, i guess you can go ahead buy one and replace the other filter.
but like i said, i wouldnt. but its your call mang. :drunk:

Well it turns out that I will not be doing the seal on the oil pan. Did not know that I would have to remove the exhaust to do this task. I have called the dealer that sold me the bike and they wanted me to get a quote, I am assuming that they will be paying for the repairs at this point. Just hope the dealer I took it to does not find anything else wrong with the bike due to the over filled oil :banghead:

Taking the exhaust off isn't so difficult, though it's probably best the dealership will probably be doing/paying for the repairs.
