    lots of different things happened. this particular picture shows the innards on the generator side so that i can replace the balancer shaft seal. it was beyond its useful life span and allowing oil to vent into the front carb. made for hard starting and of course unnecessary oil consumption. also pulled the valve cover heads to clean them up. hopefully the gaskets are still good as i just cleaned them up and re-used them. i found a frayed return throttle cable (waiting parts that are in flight to me). pulled and cleaned the carbs (jets and passages). its basically a pretty decent maintenance tear down.
    it is not! this is the bike that made the journey to montana and back! i am hoping i will not have to strip parts from the parts bike for many years to come!
