Also,,, notice that when you changed the oil sump/pan gasket when you cleaned the old gasket off did you also clean it from the Block?? sometime the gaskets also sticks to the block so you may have installed the new gasket over some of the old gasket on the block which would also create a leak.

if you note in your picture you cane see the oil building on the to half (block side) for the oil gasket..

AND YES...

your clutch cover gasket needs replacing also..

Yes, I've also cleaned the old gasket off the engine (used fine sandpaper and an old toothbrush).
Thanks for the reminder though! :D

I had to replace the oil filter adaptor seal on my bike (UK Diversion, '99) p/n 93210-87723: it is a 87mm ID 4mm CS round profie o-ring. Should be had for the price of a coffee, just double check that part number matches your model - there's some variation.

87mm (Inside Diameter) 4mm (Cross sectional)


I have replaced the clutch cover gasket. It was all dried up, felt like rubber and was really hard to get off. (Will upload pictures soon).

I think that I need to take the oil-pan off again. It seems like I might have moved the gasket a little bit while putting everything back together.
