    blown engine gasket

    Earlier in the month I rode my TW out to the end of the Knik / Goose bay road to pick up a truck I bought, I had earlier dropped off ramps to load the bike up. When I got there, I saw oil all over the swing arm, figured out where it was coming from and ordered the appropriate gasket. Yesterday when the gasket went in (stbd side ) I realized there was very little oil left in the bike. If I had ridden another 20 miles it would likely have fried the engine from lack of oil. I had no idea I was puking oil on the hour + ride out. Cuidado.

    It was alot easier than I thought it would be following B-dub's video's and directions. Good luck!

    Hidden Content A ride in the woods helps me relax and release tension. The fact I'm dragging a body should be entirely irrelevant?
