While Ive got the oil pan off...

So it seems Ive got a hole in my oil pan (see attached). I'm going to pick up one from ebay but I was wondering

1) what orings gaskets etc should I be looking to replace while I'm doing it and

2) any checks (oil pump, etc) or other things I should be replacing while I have the bottom out

Oil pan doesn't use a paper gasket, just Hondabond liquid gasket material. Should cost about $7 for a tube.

Not sure what else should be done while yer in there, but i'll need to know soon cuz i'm pulling mine this winter

Hondabond is easier to work with and easy to cleanup should you have to remove the pan again. Great product.
You can also use the permatex products also for this job. I have used permatex ultra grey and ultra black for oil pans before with no issues. Don't over do the sealant. From my experience Less is more here.

[shameless plug] I have got an oil pan for sale . $20+ shipping [/shameless plug]

James I pulled mine earlier this year and found the pan to be very thin which allowed for a crack after 1 impact. I had the crack welded and reinforced the pan with a skid plate which was just an 1/4 inch peice of aluminum.

My bike is lowered so the skid plate on the chappy oklahoma roads has saved my pan more then once. It's just tack welded on.

The pan itself is super easy to pull just remember to mark which bolt came out of what hole. There are 2 that are slightly longer then the rest if I remember correctly.

You may also find it useful that a tube of Hondabond (fantastic stuff by the way) can also be purchased at a Honda or Acura car dealership as well.
