New here. right crank case cover gasket?

I'm new to motorcycles in general, but Ive always wanted a fun project. I ended up buying a 1986 rebel off of a friend for a few bucks. Its in rough shape, and pretty much completely taken apart, but I think I can get it running. I'm starting on it in may when school lets out for the summer; so, you may see more of my posts in the future. I noticed the right crankcase cover didn't have a gasket on my engine. Where is the best place to buy gaskets? I'm looking to spend as little as possible. I saw there were kits on ebay that were pretty cheap. Are those worth buying? Thanks!

Welcome to the forum. If you haven't taken a basic rider course, it will give you a good foundation to build on. Trained riders have fewer accidents than those who are taught by friends, relatives, or worst of all, themselves. If you find you enjoy riding, read david Hough's books, Proficient Motorcycling and More Proficient Motorcycling. Then read them again in six months; you'll be surprised how much more you learn the second time around.

Posts: 757 You can find the gasket here. It is part #2, and the price is $14.07. I always recommend genuine Honda parts when possible.

I also recommend taking the MSF basic riders course, and reading David Hough's books. And since it seems like you will be putting the bike back together, make sure you do it right, so you will have a safe bike. Often a bike in decent safe condition will cost less than what it costs to rebuild a basket case. Manufacturers never fail to amaze me by being able to build a $5000 motorcycle out of $25,000 worth of parts and include the labor free.
