    It seemed like a combination of things or ome of two
    A blocked oil filter and a blocked crankcase breather.
    A fresh oil change
    No more oil leaking from the starter motor
    And no more oil pressure light coming on.
    They always say to check the simple things first.
    It has 114,000 miles on it.
    On the other hand, my BMW is right behind with 111,000 and change.

    My GS was a headlight bulb eater too. Are you still on the original clutch?
    Guess this thread is about motorcycles after all....:lol3

    It's not the headlight.....it is that little running light that has been out for years.
    Yes, still has the original clutch.

    I'm guessing there have been times where he might have been as ripe as one and to a blind person may have been mistaken.

    Actually it is.....
    Broken
    Battery-less
    But set at 10 until 2
    Does that still make me a hippy?
    Lol
    I do want to get it fixed though
    My parents gave it to me as a college graduation gift quite a few years back.
    I woke it up out of the dead for this trip but now it stopped working.
