The O ring may throw off the cover somewhere else. You may have a bad gasket. You could try some liquid gasket on the leaking spot. Follow instructions on container.

Hi, Nollbert_bau external oil deposits fall into 3 categories:
1. WEEPAGE is oil that is sweated pass gaskets, seals, o-rings, and crankcase seams, it's covered by dry dust and is normal for older engines with lots of miles, no repair is necessary.
2. SEEPAGE is the same as weepage except the deposit is wet and confines itself to a specific area, repair is optional depending on the owner's cleanliness criteria, the deposit location and the amount of "DRACHMA" he is willing to part with
3. LEAKAGE is the same as seepage except it is enough to drop to the ground leaving a spot. Repair as necessary.
To find the source of your oil leak, start at the point where you see oil and trace its path going up and forward, blowing baby powder from the palm of your hand will help in those difficult to see areas if there is too much oil present then buy a spray can of engine degreaser apply it to the affected area then rinse off with a pressure wand or garden hose, use compressed air to blow off excess water or just let it drip dry, take your bike for a 15 minute ride and check for the leak.

How to change centre spark plug on my thunderbird 900 is there a special plug spanner and where do i purchase one.


I recently had to change my sparks on my 2002 thunderbird. It certianly wasn't a simple case of remove fuel tank as you still get the spine of the bike blocking your path. Any standard box spanner and even the Triumph spanner failed to get enough clearance to access the plug. Short of removing the whole engine block I removed the top cover of the engine and used a shorter 5" box spanner. Fiddly job but with the tools at hand worked. Unless someone knows of any specialist bendy spanners?
