My Ft has started weeping oil from the head gasket area on the cooling fins. No compression loss but I started to smell it one day and a week later saw the evidence of oil. I just cleaned it off and kept on trucking. Is the head gasket a problem on the FT as I have heard nothing about the old XR500's having issues. Maybe it satt in the barn too long before I got it.

When the system fails you, what then?? Do you fight it or just surrender and give up? If all seems doomed what is left to fight for? Is it just me or does the world seem to close in on you when you seem to be making ground? Options are dwindling down, what comes next? And in the words of Pink Floyd "Is there anybody out there". All I know is I WILL SURVIVE.
