Q What is this mechanism attached to the back of my Yamaha XJR1200’S clutch cover? The gasket on the other side has failed and thrown oil out. Is it easy to disassemble to fit a new gasket? Adam Sivell-thompson, PS Facebook Group
A Saul Towers says: That is described in the parts fiche as a breather. There is a huge grommet behind it. There is also a rubber ring behind the round plate in the centre cover. It all comes apart easily enough to establish which of the gaskets has failed.
