Put a new starter (V-Max 1200 4 brush) on my 84VR. Using silicone as a gasket material on sidecover however when I tighten the sidecover the starter drags really bad to where the wires want to get hot. It seems when I tighten the top screws on the left it starts to drag.

Any ides?

The cover is pressing on the intermediate starter gear. The cover needs to come back off and it needs to have the stock gasket, The tolerance for the intermediate starter gear is VERY sensitive to the correct fit on the cover. You can use an adhesive with the gasket but silicon is OUT around gas and oil, it breaks down and clocks stuff... hondabond #4 worked great for me, stays flexible and when it is needed, it cleans off pretty darned well...
