The different grades of Yama Bond

I am interested in using one of the grades of yamabond on a top end job for my XT600. It will get used at the case split facing the base gasket, and probably also the rocker box cover. I'm faced with a choice of their #4, 5 or 7 on eBay. Reading the descriptions which range from vague leak-stopping gasket maker to #7 being used as a handgrip glue. Anyone have more solid information on the line of Yamabond products?

No real help, but to say that yamabond (sorry I cant remember the grade) has worked well for me in the case of 2 smoke engines.

I believe Threebond 1104 is relabeled as the various -bonds i.e. Yamabond, Ducatibond, Hondabond etc. It's the same a Yamabond 4 which is what you want for use on cases.

I found threebond 1184 while looking at yamabond, but yes, the 4 being 'semi-drying' looks like the one. Thanks for the info.

Find the Loctite thread, two pages back

dirty sanchez is THE go to guy. He's a great resource. More info there than you can remember.
I use Hondabond HT on gasketless Honda car transmissions. Dirty recommends something else.

I'm out of goop at the moment so can't check but pretty sure what I use is #4. Keeps old HD and Brit bikes from leaking. It's the # version that stays somewhat pliable. Talk with a local bike dealer and see what # they use. Don't matter which brand dealer. Yamabond, Hondabond, Suzukibond is all the same stuff made by the Threebond company just labeled according to contract.

Loctitie 515 is pretty good stuff for gasketless applications.
Maybe DS has a better line on what is available?

Yep, 515, 518, 510 any of them would be a better choice in my opinion.

As we've talked about in the Loctite thread, all of that Yamhonkawabond stuff is solvent based and is messy. As soon as you draw a bead with that stuff, it immediately begins to cure, and as a result, you'e rushed for reassembly.

A rushed wrench is a careless wrench.

Every time I hear about a loctite product, I think of a thread locker type of liquid and get scared off. But this seems pretty convincing. So there's a gasket making type of caulk-like consistency product that they make? I've yet to see it in stores.

These products are excellent and work much better than the standard Yamabond and Threebond stuff. Excess Yamabond internally hardens and can break off clogging filters, etc, while the anaerobic products only harden in the absence of oxygen therefore cause no problems. These products are available at any auto parts store. I use Permatex Anaerobic Gasket Maker # 51813.

Threebond 1184 is what we use in the shop to assemble engine cases. Or anything else that needs sealing. I put a bit on every drain bolt when changing the oil. Just don't go crazy with it and let it tack up for 5-10 minutes before assembling the parts.

There are quite a few vintage bikes out there with old, ripped gaskets sealed with 1184 because new gaskets have been discontinued. Not seen one leak yet.

Is there a 'semi-hardening' grade of either loctite or threebond someone can give me the number for? I haven't caught on to the numbering systems yet.
