Performance Bikes (UK) - - KIT REVIEWS - Chris New­big­ging

There’s a com­fort in hav­ing cer­tain items tucked away ready for mo­ments that re­quire a very spe­cific some­thing: this beaten-up tube of crank­case sealant is a favourite.

Bought ini­tially to stick the gas­ket in place around the boost port on my TZR250 (the nar­row sec­tions oc­ca­sion­ally blow out), I used a good amount as­sem­bling my RGV, and it’s since been in­valu­able for emer­gency fixes (en­forced re-use of gas­kets) and belt and braces sealed as­sem­bly (stop­ping oily spooge leak­ing from man­i­folds on ex­pan­sion cham­bers). Plenty of sim­i­lar prod­ucts are avail­able, but this is the only one that con­sis­tently re­sists heat, fuel or oil. I’ve kept it in the box as in­structed, and it’s still per­fect to use – even a per­fo­ra­tion in the tube hasn’t been a prob­lem, the oozed sealant has just cured and sealed it up...

Oil-tight cases and sticky fin­gers guar­an­teed
