Re: Lowside on clutch cover = hole and then into the dirt
Alright well I was a bit overwhelmed with the responses I got on this! But I will update just in case someone else ever has this problem. I did NOT do the "right" thing and pull the motor and rebuild it.
I pulled the stator cover, and wiped out everything I could. Then using a hand pump fertilizer-type sprayer, I sprayed everything I could see and reach down with several gallons of diesel. Wiped everything down again after that.
Then I pulled the oil pan (lol at the newer models that need the motor yanked to do an oil pan), and cleaned the pan out with brake clean. I cleaned up the old gasket materials, put on new gasket material, buttoned it back up.
I ran walmart supertech with a new filter through it for about an hour of run time and the dumped all that, changed the filter again and added T6 Rotella full-synth.
Bike is runs like nothing ever happend. I have an NRC cover on that side now, just need to get the rest of the NRC covers before I head back to the track.
