Drained the oil on my thundercat last weekend and found a great crack along the drain hole grumpy

There's an engineering works down the road who will sort it for me but I need to get the sump off first. Anyone done it before - reckon I can drop it off without removing the downpipes?

Okay, sump's off and engineering place primed to weld and helicoil or retap as required.

Just need a gasket for the sump and all being well I should be back on the road this weekend.

Any ideas on where to order a sump gasket? There nearest Yamaha dealer is miles away and most of the online shops I know only do full gasket sets and not a sump gasket separately.

I'd be tempted to try a liquid gasket if its only a thin gasket

Hermetite is on standby if I can't get a proper gasket - would rather get one if I can though as the gasket has a number of fillets on it and I'm not sure what their purpose is, if any.

Sorry to hear you've been down in the sump recently.

Hope it can be sorted for not too many £'s

Cheers
