Hi everyone.

I have an oil leak from the point highlighted in the picture.

I've ordered some new cover gaskets.

Do you think this will solve the leak or should I replace my covers back to the old type (they are chrome at the moment).

Thanks!

the gasket may have defourmed by now. but i would be for renewing the valve cover bolt rubber pluges. haveing a brain fart on this end , cant rember the name of this part.
it looks like you`ve got all the life out of them. LOL

Yeah, they were replaced along with the covers, which was earlier in the year. I use my bikes all year round, so I guess I've had my money's worth!

I've ordered some official Honda ones so hopefully they will last a bit longer!

I had a leak in the same area as yours. It turned out to be the cap seal under the little round cover on the end of the head. I tried new bolt seals, 3 diferent sets of gaskets and 2 sets of covers before I found the real leak. Hope this helps. Dwight

...why do you have split-washers on them cover bolts?

I didn't put the covers on, the garage I use did it.

Are they the wrong type?

Yep, wrong don't need any washer there but if you want one use a solid crush washer.

i have also used this trick to stop a leak. what it does is increase the pressure of wore out bolt rubber gaskets and valve cover gaskets providing there not split.
