    Head gasket leaking - "Re-torque"?

    It's been a while since I've noticed black gooey build-up at the front of the head gasket.

  6. Left engine cover leak (the one that contains the starter clutch)

    I'm pretty desperate at this point.

    Hi all, hope you've been all doing well.
    Today I went to a shop to replace the driving chain (the only service I don't do myself). I have ordered a 108-link chain as per the manual (530, 18/46)....

    No flash on photo, the colors look true. So, would the board recommend, say, 1/4 turn out on the idle mixture screws? My main jets are stock keihin #68.

    And what is your front wheel size? Did you change it too?
    Did you measure speed with the bike's speedo or GPS?
    How did the bike accelerate?
