    Ah well that is a relief at least! I cleverly used a magnetised pickup tool to get the big chunks of the flakes as they were very magnetic...which made me realised that it must've been from something that was magnetic.

    I just had this fear that I'll send allll this money, put it back together, and something I haven't fixed will rear up and destroy all the new parts. Like if I had opened it up and there was something clearly getting destroyed I'd feel better, cause I'd know that's where everything came from. But this...

    I sympathise with this completely

    Everytime I do a patch fix on my engine because finance dictates it, instead of replacing everything I see that could maybe do with replacing, I live in this paranoid fear that the universe is gonna get me :deal Sad but true :lol3

    In the end it´s probably just a question of going with general consensus and relying on your own judgement and that of the people here and go with it, there´s some real experience based expertise floating around these parts of the interweb :ear

    Thanks for the torque values. Never imagined that I'd have to drop the engine down to remove the valve cover! Not exactly a one hour job...:baldy

    You don't have to drop the engine down. You remove the carb and the carb intake boot and then the rocker cover slides back to where the carb was and out the right side.

    You should have asked...:eek1

    Its a sad sad day for me, but I have to do it...

    If someone knows of somebody hopefully with an appreciation for our bikes, like this one, modded and loved a bit in the area(central america) please let me know

    My dream for the bike would be to have a true offroad traveller come down, buy it and go down to south america on backroads all the way down to ushuaia!

    yeah hard sell I know,

    So I changed my 2" ROX risers out for a 3.5' set and now my clutch cable is binding when I turn right. Does anyone know of a compatable cable that is 2-3 inches longer?

    WOW Steve that was FAST!! THANKS A BUNCH:clap You must have done something like this before? This is a Honda compatable cable, right?
    I have a longer cable from a Yamaha XT that I figured would work but the cable inside the sleeve has a longer throw and won't adjust out. If that makes any sense...:D
