Sorry I should have clarified that the zoomed out picture is from before. The engine is in the bike right now.if it is still out of the bike pull the cover do it now
that is a pretty normal place for the gasket to shrink and draw in or if the vents have become plugged ever or the cylinder head tubes plugged
the motor will spit the gasket out from windage
But it looks like I can still get to the front cover without taking the engine out. Is this possible? or would a bit of silicon work for now until the snow falls?
