    It is difficult to tell, I can’t see much of the crankcase. I can see the bottom of the cylinder, it is clean aluminum.

    "Does anyone have a clue what this coating is? My bike is exhibiting symptoms of an air leak. I pulled the reeds to check the gasket and found this substance with some edges lifting on it. I started pealing the loose stuff away."

    Man i would think that's a problem! Inside of the engine with something flaking off and getting in the bearings, top end, etc? What are you going to do?

    I don't think its that big a deal . I bet it would not of flaked off without his help. It could of been the fuel or oil the previous owner was running.

    The plastic end cap on the muffler is known to break. As you can see, this one has taken some hits. I thought about buying a new one but I just see that breaking fairly quickly. I decided to take a crack at fixing it.

    I drilled a hole in the plastic to take a 5mm RivNut.

    Then I cut a little piece of plumbing strapping the bridge the the two holes together

    Repeat the process for the other mounting holes.

    Nice! I just replaced my end cap about two weeks ago - will try this next time.

    Especially if the rider has trouble staying upright.

    But seriously, what about the internal coating flaking off? Just run it?

    I removed everything that was loose, put it back together and have been running it.

    I emailed @Hoss Cartright but have not heard back.

    Gas tank breather attachment post behind steering head. To remove does it just pull out? My big fingers can't feel back there to figure how it is attached. Went to a short breather hose with cap on end. Don't want to carry any more weight than necessary!

    It has tabs & snaps into place. I tried to remove mine last year when I changed & routed a new tube, but was afraid of breaking it so I left it be. Took quite some fiddling but I got it done.
