Signal Generator Gasket
In adjusting the valves for the first time on my 1989 Gixxer 750, I ran into something I found odd about the signal generator gasket.
The gasket design doesn't cover the entire surface of the signal generator cover. This leaves a gap at the top where the wiring penetrates open to the elements. The OEM gasket appears to be designed this way. It just looks wrong.
Can this area be sealed without issue, or is this needed for water drainage? I made a gasket that fully seals the cover but I want to make sure I'm not creating a problem down the road.
I believe this cover and gasket design is common to the oil cooled scuzukis but I can't find any info on this issue.
