The alternator cover on my 2005 Tiger has a small crack that slowly leaks oil, most noticeably when the bike is on it's side stand. I'll be replacing it, but had a few questions for the group:

- Obviously I need the alternator cover and gasket. Do I also need to order the oil rotary seal and spacer? Can I just pull the old ones off my cracked cover?

- Is the oil inside the alternator casing from the main engine oil sump? Do I need to replace the oil that comes out when I remove the cover?

- Any suggestions on whether I should use a sealant around the new gasket?

Thanks for the help!
