Valve Cover Gasket

2007 Ninjette Valve check...need the gasket but want to make sure that I'm ordering the right thing...



Part #11009 the correct one?

If so, is there anything else that I need? Do I need the 11009A's?

How many miles on your bike?
I checked the valves at 15k miles and didn't need to replace any of those.
My bike is 2013 N300. However, from the diagram, they seem to be the same gaskets.

8500 miles. I plan to ride it until it falls apart, at what I am hoping is 100k+ miles. I have a cruiser, but this is my go to bike for just plain FUN. Every time I think about selling it or trading it in...I ride it and change my mind. Last time, I was on my way to a dealership for a bike that I really want....got 10 miles and turned around. I may end up being the last one left on this forum when it's all said and done...hopefully.

WOW! Very low miles for a 2007. Hopefully you will correct that and put many happy miles to it.

Mine being a 2013 is not that young either, but when I pulled out the cover, everything was in good condition. I put liquid gasket on the rounded parts and kept the three gaskets. It holds fine. No oil coming out.

I would order 92055 as well. At this age milage is irrelevant. Rubber gets hard and you are better off replacing all the rubber where you can.

I guess it depends on the rubber quality and where is the bike kept.

My 1986 Honda Interceptor still had all original gaskets and rubber hoses the last time I used it in 2012 (26 years). It had 35k miles, not many. No leaks of any kind. Always kept indoors.
Even the brakes o rings were the originals.

Only carburetors o rings were replaced once in a while.

For me, if the gasket looks good, as in with no cuts and not dry, then it's good to go. Especially if it wasn't letting oil out before the service.

Its not that good on these bikes. Mine is 2007 too low milage in a good shape. Every single rubber gasket I replaced was far from being good. Oil kills them, they get hard. They still do not leak and no cracks but you do not know how bad they are until you compare them with the new ones side by side. They are not expensive, if I already have the pieces apart its no extra effort to replace them.

You. might already know that but you also need sealant to seal the crevices where those half circle pieces are attached to the flat gasket.

Wow, there's an '86 Interceptor still on the road? My husband had one for a while. We were supposed to teach me to ride it, but we just never did, then it sat, and he sold it. Then I took the class, and got my Ninjette and I'm happy.

Mine is not on the road anymore. I rode it last time in 2012 and then left it in my home town to a nephew of mine, but he didn't have the money or the will to take proper care of it and it's been neglected since then. I guess it may be restored, but I don't have the time to do it.

It's kind of a classic. I'm sure there are many out there still running.
