new tower for dry sump


Recommended Posts

Having tried a new top/tower for my dry sump (many thanks Steve), I am still getting an oil leak. Now it is at the base of the screw on cap (the one you take out to put oil in).


I did see on an earlier thread that the latest tower cap, as fitted to an R500, does a much better job of keeping oil in and venting gases out to the catch tank.


I have a couple of questions:


a. does anyone know the name of the dry sump system fitted to a 1998 SLR?

b. will the new R500 bell tower cap (swirl pot cap?) fit to the system I have fitted?

c. will it keep the oil in?!

d. is it a self install job?

e. how much?


thanks in advance
