Got an oil leak coming from the generator/alternator cover. I will installing a new gasket and such, hopefully this will do the trick. Anyone ever experience this on their Kawai's?

You are really having alot of problems with that bike, aren't you.

Make sure both gasket surfaces are completely clean. Use a little bit of emery cloth, nothing too hard (like a screwdriver). And if you're unsure of the trueness of the surfaces, use a dab of silicon gasket sealer on the gasket before installation. Not too much because you don't really want that crap floating around in your engine.

To true up the mating surfaces, run the cover across a whole sheet of med-fine grit sandpaper on a SUPER FLAT surface. Like a piece of glass, mirror or your buddys granite counter top.

Using any sort of silicone adhesive, REMEMBER:
'What squeezes out, squeezes in.'
