Re: Sealing Clutch cover after servicing - Liquid Gasket needed?
In case someone else has the same doubts as me, After cleaning the springs and the washer right next to the nut, it was clear how they were mounted before because you can clearly see some wearing marks from the contact points. In the washer you can see the nut shade, and in the springs you can see some wear in the center of the springs from the spring "holder" (the thing that looks like a cup).
Also, I did this clutch service to find out why was it dragging (in a paddock stand with clutch lever pulled all the way the wheel will rotate and couldn't be stopped with hand force), there was nothing obvious, I just followed a tip to deep the plates in oil overnight , clean all the gunk and file down notches in the baskets if there was. Voila, no more dragging clutch and gearbox operation is much smoother!
Thank you for all your tips, I ended up with no leaks! :-)
