I recently swapped a gsxr 750 into my kat 600. I took all case covers, the oil pan, and the valve cover off to inspect before running. They didn't seal because of the age of the gaskets when I put them back together.

I've used rtv to seal a VC gasket on my 600 no problem in the past, but was wondering what everyone thinks as far as using it on case covers and oil pans on these motors?

I would leave the gasket in place, since it is basically glued to the motor at this point, and clean it and skim with RTV to seal it. I would likely use "the right stuff" as I've had really good experiences with it in the past.

Thoughts?

not sure what RTV is (guessing some sorta instant gasket?)

But I used silicone sealant on both the badly cracked rocker cover & the damaged side casing gasket surface on the original engine I got with my 750. Never leaked in the two years I ran that engine:D

I've used permatex ultra blue on my lower trans case and oil pan. No leaks here after 400 miles. I was recommended it by a friend
