So, I dropped the oil pan to perform a complete cleaning. Pulled the Relief Valve and Oil Strainer to give them a good kerosene cleaning. O-Ring/Gasket looked fine. The shop manual says to "replace". I put them back in without replacing. Is this going to be a problem?? They went back in just fine. I'm afraid they are going to drop out though. Should I pull the pan back off and replace the O-Ring/Gasket??

Oh yea, this is a 2000 RC51

Probably will be ok.
Replace if you feel the o-ring has become stiff from age/heat or damaged.
Hmm...coin flip here. Maybe redo this when the snow flies? I would have changed them just for piece of mind.:cool:

I know what your thinking too... "Thank you Mr. Hind-sight!" :D

i don't think it will be an issue.

I usually replace that worn stuff when i can though. It is 13 years old and might as well do it when you have the opportunity.

Thx all for your replies. "Thank you Mr. Hind-sight!" :D I'm toying with dropping the pan before I put in the fresh oil and replace the O-rings. Then again.......:confused: Again, thx all for you inputs.
