    I saw that site, looks like a well organized group. Also saw that last meeting was in Nov, assume they resume sometime in the spring? I'd love to meet up whenever things resume.

    What is the line item for cylinder head gaskets? I haven't seen that in my maintenance schedule. Something additional or did I miss something on my 12k service?

    Ended up, I'm not really in a position for either one. They're both great bikes, build dates are 11/08 for both and both are definitely '09 models. Someone will get a great bike!

    So it's obvious what my favorite color is. Funny thing is, VIN #'s are off by 1 single digit on last number, made together and separated at birth! Anything else someone notices? Only other thing I...

    Yeah, I think so. While the window shows the OT mark, tapping the wheel (in gear) moves one side and the other side's rockers don't move at all. I adjusted the side that didn't move, then went to...

    Further Surgery

    So I dove a bit deeper into this monster. Pulled the carbs, pulled the valve covers, pulled the heads, then pulled the cylinders.
