    You mean the "O" ring for the drain plug? Filter comes with a new gasket. What are you referring to?

    I should have been more clear. The gasket kit that has the o rings and gasket for the derby cover when changing all three oils.

    I'm sure you could find them online somewhere but going to the dealer works for me.

    Don't need them. I have never replace the o-ring after many oil changes on either of my bikes and the derby cover gasket/o-ring can be reused several times. Of course, if either is damaged, replacement is a good idea.;)

    J&P Cycles offers a fluid o-ring kit. But I get mine for the drain plugs from my local ACE Hardware. The clutch derby cover gasket in most cases can be used several times if it's the solid type with the silicone bead on it.

    Like Dolt suggests, I reuse mine all the time. I keep one derby cover on hand and you can buy a bag of orings for the drain plug form Amazon that may last you forever. No need to go to the dealer for either unless you like shoveling money to your dealer.
