Chuck,

I think I have my old clutch plates laying around. Which ones do you need? PM me your address and I'll send you what you need. I can send you a couple of each, they are toast.

Not sure why, but I do not use it. I use the ignition to turn the bike off.

I run 35-37 psi in the tires for street riding. I am still running the Pirelli Scorpion syncs on my bike.

Was your oil tank cap tightly screwed in? Also check the clamp at the hose coming up from the stator case.

I usually end up putting about 3.5+ liters after a change.

Are you sure they are needles or is there a lot of shadowing going on? The needles look kind of like a large sewing needle without the eye in the end. Those look like chopsticks.

Thanks I will check that as well. The 990 Cluster is a bit pricey. The price they want just for the analog tach off the ADV is a little offensive also. So I may be tachless for even longer.
