Just about to do the Primary cover on the S1.
Getting new gasket from Tubbs.
What is the best sealer to use with it?
I used to use Loctite multi gasket, but not able to get hold of any.
Also looking for a good bonding agent for securing carbon frame and swing arm protectors on the MilleR.

I always fit primary gaskets dry. Never had a leak yet. The best sealant I've come across is Yamabond.
As for sticking protectors onto a bike, I used Silicone bathroom sealant. Removing the CF protectors off my blown up XB when I p/exd it (at Chester :yup: :lol: ) was a right bastard - they wouldn't pull off in a crash.

if you need to use sealant on your gasket then you have a bad mateing face. yambond/kawabond. all the same stuf made by 3m. it should be available from any jap dealer it is expensive but it will last years. use sparingly!

I fitted my (Maz supplied) primary gasket dry and it is totally leak free. Use solvent cleaner to remove any old gasket material as opposed to scraping it off. Use your fingernails if you have to.
