A couple hundred miles today, mostly twisties. Just a short stretch of high speed gravel as well, which made me very happy.


This describes the leak, so I put a new seal on, but it didn't fix my weep.



Tried to seal as best I could, we'll see how that goes.


USPS delivered a new oil pan gasket, oil filters and crush washers, so I was off to tackle the low hanging drain plug.

She came off and cleaned up easily:


Before:


After:


Cleaned up and flushed the plug/crush washer surface with some bastard files. Getting the pan back on was somehow difficult for me... but I eventually got it with just a few cuss words. The end result is much better, and whilst the drain plug still hangs down a little, I think a skid plate will take care of the rest. I guess that makes it next on the list.




EDIT:
And Rick Clemson snapped one of me on Palomar... Thanks Rick.



Also forgot to mention, got a record setting MPG hit on this ride, north of 40! I don't usually ride too slow though...
