I didn't need any for the valve cover gaskets (at least not yet), they fitted up perfectly. I got them from a guy called georgefix on eBay, really good quality, as the ones that came on the bike were proper roached. For the timing belt covers I just used what I had lying around - three bond, sparingly. Just enough here and there to hold it in place while I finagled the things into place. But I'll put some Indian Head on the shopping list, thanks for the Indian heads-up. Groan.How did you tack the gaskets to the covers? I used old Indian Head because it comes off with acetone if necessary. Sucks getting RTV out of the groove.
I know but the one CT sells here that is the right one is green. they have reds and blues that state Contains Elthylene Glycol but they have other additives in them you don't want in the GL block. They have to dye them per law here. can't sell a clear coolant. But if you have access to a lab supply store you can mix your own clear with 50/50 ethylene and distilled water.Ethylene Glycol is clear. It’s nothing to do with the color of the coolant.
this. Here in Canada Canadian Tire stocks 2 silicate free you can buy cheap and I've been using for 8+ years. 3 refills so far and 0 issues, half the cost of the Honda car dealer price and 1/4 the cost of the bike dealer.Definitely NO SILICATES! I generally buy that intended for Japanese cars or go to the Honda auto dealer and get theirs (a heck of a lot cheaper than the motorcycle dealership, and the same stuff!) Silicates eat the mechanical seal in the water pump.
