Oil pressure sensor replaced 9/14/2015started to leak oil again. Valve cover gasket replaced 1/6/2016 9/14/2015 now leaking oil again


When you replace the rocker cover gaskets, clean the surfaces where the gasket contacts the heads and the rocker cover with alcohol and a rag. Make sure there is absolutely no oil residue on either surface. Use a silicon sealer and spread it on the side of the gasket that will touch the head. Position it and use the head bolts temporarily as guide pins to hold the gasket in place until the sealant dries COMPLETELY. Remove the bolts. Now put more sealant on the surface of the rocker cover and install the cover on the gasket gently so as not to disturb the gasket. Install the cover bolts and tighten firmly but not so as to squeeze or deform the gasket. If dine correctly, the gasket will not leak.

Leaks oil from rocker cover. repaired 3 times. is this a common fault? what is the solution?


The rocker cover will leak oil..............

1. If the rocker cover has been damaged due to poor mechanical fitment and is no longer perfectly straight; or
2. The rocker cover bolts are not torqued evenly at the correct ft/lbs specification; or
3. If the rocker cover bolts have been excessively torqued in which event the cover will distort and the gasket will be excessively compressed; or
4. The gasket is in poor condition and needs to be renewed; or

5. The gasket fitting is sloppy done in which event you can assume the cover will not have been properly fitted either.

I would be buying a new rocker cover (or a straight used one) before doing the next repair because your original is probably deformed now and will likely never seal properly.

Leaking rocker box gasket


Rocker arms have to be removed, BUT newer push rods are NOT adjustable, so you just can't loosen the push rods.

On the cylinder you're working on, BOTH valves MUST be closed.
EVENLY loosen rocker arm mounting block bolts, a little at a time.

Also, IF you remove the push rods, they are different lengths, so pay attention which one goes back where!

Oil leak from rocker cover


It is most probably the rocker cover gasket. This is enough to install, you just need to source the correct part from your local parts store or dealer. Remove bolts and rocker cover and replace seal. Ensure on replacement, that you use a sealant that is compatible with oxygen sensors, I use PERMATEX ULTRA-BLU RTV Silicone. That seams to work a treat.

Replace rocker cover gaskets on 1990 fxr


To replace the upper rocker box gaskets is not too difficult. But, if you're replacing the gaskets between the head and the lower plate, this gets a bit more involved. You must remove the fuel tank as well.

To replace the top gaskets, simply remove the four bolts and lift the top and middle plate off the lower plate. The left rear bolt on the rear cylinder is the toughest bolt to get out. Sometimes there is a hole drilled in the frame to make access to this bolt easier. If not, you'll have to shorten a hex key wrench in order to get it out. With the top and middle plates our, replace the "umbrella valve" in the middle plate making sure you put it in from the correct side. Now place the outer gasket in the lower plate, the outer and middle gasket in the middle plate and set the top plate down on them. Wiggle the plates around a bit until you get them lined up properly with each other and tighten the top four bolts down a little at a time one each bolt until they're all tight. Torque to 80 inch pounds.

If you're going to remove the lower plate, first bring the piston of one cylinder up to top dead center on the compression stroke. Remove the spark plug and rotate the engine until both valves are fully closed. Remove the air filter assembly and backing plate. Remove the large bolts on the right side of the rocker arms Slide the rocker arm shaft out of the rocker arms one at the time and remove the rocker arm and it's pushrod. Notice that the rocker arm shaft have a recess ground into them. This is so the 5/16" acts as a lock to hold the shaft in place. It must be realigned on reassembly of the rocker plate. Once you get all the rocker arms and pushrods removed, you should have the pushrod tubes out as well. Remove the rest of the bolts and lift the lower rocker box plate. Clean the bottom of the rocker box plate and top of the head.

Assembly is the reverse of disassembly. Make sure you don't get the pushrods mixed up as they are all four of different lengths and will only work properly in their correct postitions. They are color coded for their proper positions. There is no adjustment of the pushrods.
Front intake --- YELLOW
Front exhaust -- GREEN
Rear Intake --- BLUE
Rear Exhaust --- PURPLE
Lower rocker box torque values are: 5/16" bolts 15-18 foot pounds
1/4" bolts 10-13 foot pounds
