Quick bike update.

I was checking the valve clearance today and they were all loose. I noticed the roller on the exhaust lifter looks warn funny. I sent pictures to my friend Martin at Torque Racing in the UK and he said it looks like the hardening is coming off the roller.

Tomorrow I will adjust the valve clearance back within spec. The rocker will need to be replaced but that will wait until Georgia. I have 1700 km to Tbilisi then I will be giving this bike the TLC she deserves. The snow is calling and I would rather wait for parts on the slopes sipping irish coffee with ski bunnies than waiting for them here in Turkey.
