Okay i had to do the water pump seals on my bike and split the case.. This is the first time i have done it got almost done and noticed a few bad spots in the gasket but i did try to get the case back on and it did not seem to want to go on... Waiting on the new gasket but was looking around and i have seen a few things talking about special tools to get cases back on.. But also that it can be done with out... Anyone have any tips for helping me geting it back on?? Thanks! :thumbsup:

You didn't split the cases, so you don't have to worry about the special tools involved with reassembling them. All you did was remove the right side crankcase cover.

Okay cool so i have nothing to worry about then right? :thumbsup: Everyone told me this was easy but i have never really done anything other then normal Maintenance on my bike my step dad always helped me when it was anything more then that... I have now moved out and figured it was time to learn on my own :worthy: And for a 2nd question that gasket would just be called the crankcase cover gasket? All and all it was fun just sucked i did not get it ready for are ride Sunday! thanks for putting up with my ignorance and helping me out!
