To be honest, a compression check scares me but I guess before I replace every part on this bike, I should do it. I find it pretty easy to work on and enjoy wrenching and learning. I ordered some plug wires and plan to do a spline lube in the next few weeks, to find a transmission drip. Did the FD drive splines and they were well lubed so I'm optimistic. Valves checked and shims replaced. New rubber on the TB's and new temp sensor. Bad part is poor mileage is the only bad thing about the bike, starts and runs great. After the splines, maybe replace front wheel bearings.

I don't enjoy spending money, I just feel certain things 25 years old need to be replaced.
