Infamous Left Side Oil Leak - Exactly what parts do I need?
I picked up a 2006 Rebel 250 for my girlfriend to learn to ride on, but it had a few issues when I rode it home. It stalled on idle when hot (I've since rebuilt the carb, so that should be fixed).
The issue I want to solve now is the infamous left-side oil leak. The bike was owned by an 80 year old man, which I thought was a good thing, but in hindsight it probably means he neglected all maintenance.
I haven't checked the puke tube yet, but I'm sure it's full, and I assume the crankshaft seal is blown out. On the ride home, a bunch of oil sprayed out the left side of the bike, onto the exhaust pipe and my leg.
I'm trying to figure out what parts I need to order to replace the crankshaft seal. The parts I know I need are:
Crankshaft Seal: 91201-402-015
Flywheel Seal: 91205-965-003
Flywheel Puller: Motion Pro 08-0027 Flywheel Puller M16X1.5 R.H.
What I'm confused about is the gaskets for the Stator Cover. Do I even need to replace those?
Inner Gasket: 11394-KBG-772
Outer Gasket: 11395-KBG-772
And I've seen that some people use Red RTV on the outside of the crankshaft seal, and one person on YouTube used Red Locktite. What's the best idea here?
And last thing, is it safe to use an air impact gun with that flywheel puller bolt? I won't damage the end of the crankshaft will I?
