Currently it's more of a misting than a leak, but I'm just sort of auditing what will need to be done at some point or another.

I guess that rather than pull the engine out I'm more slightly more inclined to get it up on the paddock stands and drop the swingarm & subframe out, pull the gearbox, remove the clutch & get at the flywheel with the engine still in the frame and renew the rear crank seal & oil pump cover seal together when the time comes.

I'm also inclined to tighten the head race, bleed the front (K) brakes & replace the front & rear wheel bearings. At the same time I think I'll wire the oil pressure switch back in if I can work out which one of the draw full of wiring tails is the right one.

But not yet, for now I'm just going to carry on riding the shit out of it
