Question Alternator Cover.

I thinking about stripping off my alternator cover tonight to repair and paint. Any advice before I start??? Do I have to have a new gasket to put on when finished or can I use teh one I take off? What sealant is recommended?

There's your plan and then there's God's plan.........

It is always a good idea to replace the gasket seal. I haven't had one come off in one solid piece yet anyways. So you are probably going to need one. They aren't expensive at all. You only need a little bit of sealant. I've used YamaBond three times now with no issues, but Honda has one available I believe. Do you have a repair manual?

You might want to drain the oil if you are using the side stand (if I remember correctly). Can someone verify this for me? I have always changed the oil when I did it, so I can't say for certain if a lot is going to come pouring outta there.

Thanks Darkace, I knew you guys would get back to me quickly. Based on your reply I think it would be wise for me to wait and have a new gasket standing by. Hopefully my dealer has one that I can pick up tomorrow. If not I'll wait until I need an oil change. (I just had one 800 miles ago) This isn't immediate I'm just trying to get the bike cleaned up before July 18th.

If you have it on a center stand or a rear stand I think that keeps the majority of the oil in the pan. I remember somebody else posting about that, but I will have to find it.
