Cant' seal my damn Sator cover.
I have tried 3 times now trying to seal the cover and its still has a small leak. On the 3rd attempt I used Hondabond HT but it still leaks ever so slightly.
Here are my steps:
I made sure all the surfaces were clean and Hondabond was on the mating surface of the cover.
It had ample Hondabond coverage and should have been more then enough to seal it.
I made sure all the bold holes were surrounded with the Hondabond.
I even tilted the bike away from the stator cover sider when I jacked up the bike on the rear stand, thinking the oil was preventing the Hondabond from curing properly.
I tightened the bolts just enought so some Hondabond was being squeezed out, then let it sit for about 3 hours. No leaks because the bike was tilted away from that side.
I then tightened the bolts to spec and then let it sit for about another 3 hours or so, still while the bike was on the rear stand tilted away from the stator side.
I go take it for a ride and it seems to be ok, but if I let is sit for a couple of hours it still leaks a little.
I did my 3rd attempt with Hondabond on on Sat. - does it realy take 3 days for Hondabond to cure, I think that is what the instructions say? What is eveyone experience with resealing any of the case covers?
