Default 07 fireblade leaking oil

so i discovered a small oil leak coming from the right side of the engine. i believe its coming from one of the bolts on right side engine cover (crank case cover/stator cover?). im gonna change the gasket and see if that fixes it. my question is, is there anything special required when pulling that cover?

also, what type of oil do i need to have on hand to refill the engine?

thanks guys

Get some Hondabond HT (or equivalent) to seal the wire lead coming from the stator pickup. Otherwise, just make sure you clean all the old stuff off before applying the new gasket.

As far as oil, just choose any motorcycle "safe" oil. I would recommend a full synthetic, though.

I would check the rubber o-ring around the oil fill plug first. Those are known to go bad and cause more "mystery leaks" than you could imagine. It's cheaper and easier to replace than doing the whole case cover gasket and an oil change.

BTW, I dunno about the CBR1000RRs for sure, but on my RC51 I can do a stator change without changing the oil by having the bike level and giving it a while to make sure all the oil has drained into the oil pan.
