    +1. Ride it.

    I think the only other option is stainless aftermarket headers, which tend to turn a golden color, but ultimately blue too.

    Seat #1 from a 1985 or newer monoshock, non GS or R65, but should fit anything between 1985-1995. Seat #2 will work with anything from 1974 through 1984, non-GS or Non-R65, twin shock airhead.

    I think its all /5 - 1984 (mostly) will swap, so that's really 1970-1984 except for a very few /5's built in '69. Most bikes built in '69 were not type-247.

    R65 bikes may also have limitations.

    You could spray the engine with brake cleaner, then coat with baby powder underneath to positively identify where the leak is coming from (sounds like a gusher).

    That's laughable. They aren't delicate. Denial perhaps, but delicate feeling? That's a first.



    Not all bikes had oil coolers and their effectiveness is arguable IMO. The emission stuff was to...

    FWIW, I just had a failure with an Omega (which runs off the CRANK, not the CAM). No visible signs of cracks or anything, but it was a hot day. The points plate can remain in place on the camshaft...

    Resolved may not be the right heading, but I've isolated the issue. It runs fine on points...just not as smooth at the low end.

    Well, that's the nifty thing about the Omega, it mounts to the crankshaft, not the camshaft, so you leave the points right where they are.

    ** Update

    Yeah, I think there is a possibility that a loose negative battery cable may have fried the Omega...not too sure and really hoping it is not the problem because replacements are not available anymore...

    I didn't put any clear coat on the fins and they look the same some 12,000 miles later. Every once in a while I wipe my bike down with speed wax and hit the valve covers too. Easy maintenance.

    1980ish-1995 came with black valvecovers...with the exception of the R80RT, R80, R80ST and I think the R80GS. Those were not painted.
