Having heard and felt the air whistling out of the intakes during the leakdown test, I would at least be replacing the intake valves. I am skeptical that this amount of leakage is caused by...

If that bike is available for $3500 I will buy it sight unseen. You guys check 990 prices lately?

It's been a while. But isn't there a recess in the fork that the sensor fits into? I don't remember any drama with fitting. It is the SE sensor you are using, right?
