    Tinitus

    Ditto. I use ear plugs for shooting and for sleeping when late night bands are playing downtown where I live in a high rise but it actually makes the tinnitus the prominent noise. I just don't pay...

    Picking up a heavy bike

    I've seen a video reminding you to put your kick stand down if the bike is laying on the right side so when you get it up it doesn't fall over to the otherside.

    No oil leaked on my last ride (and yes it does have oil in it).
    I'll take it in after the holidays and have another look at it though.

    Ethanol

    E10 reeked havoc on my 2007 outboard motor that was supposedly designed to use ethanol. Also lawn mowers, chain saws and basically any gas engine you don't use almost daily.

    rear main seal and/or counter balancer seal

    Since the seals were replaced I have ridden my GSA 4-500 hundred miles on it with no leakage but this morning it has an oil leak.
    It isn't bad but the fact that it's leaking isn't good.
    There is a...

    TPM alternative

    I haven't bought them yet but my 2012 GSA doesn't have the TPM either and I am going to try valve stem caps with tire pressure monitors built in.

    Burrs on the shaft

    I wish I could do it myself just to see what the problem was. The seal probably just got cocked when being pressed in or maybe there are burrs on the shaft which would just cause it to leak again if...
