    It's a 56 Tiger 110. We removed the 4 bolts holding it on but it doesn't budge. Would it be ok If i give it a whack with a block of wood and a hammer. Not familiar with these

    You also may be able to apply leverage to a protruding edge of the plate with something like a tyre lever, using a frame cradle tube as a fulcrum.

    If it’s the original tin plate, you may bend it doing that, making it even harder to seal against oil leaks.

    There should be the cover, then a gasket, then a thin plate with a gauze mesh, then another gasket.

    Enthusiastic former owners may have layered each of these faces with silicone or similar making it a swine to remove.

    Unless you go crazy, you’re not gonna damage the cases, but if things are glued too well, you may have to sacrifice the cover and mesh.

    Do you use sealant when buttoning up. Sealant on crankcase, gasket, sealant both sides of gauze, gasket, sealant on sump plate or is it best to use grease.

    What about the primary, do you use sealant there. This has the alternator primary covers.
    What is the oil capacity and preferred oil, i get get conflicting info on this.

    We have drained the oil completely, after filling the oil tank is there any procedure i should follow before starting.

    Cheers
