Time to change the oil...and some gaskets?
So, I have what I understand to be a common occurrence with these beasties...
Oil coming from that little cap on the cylinder. Easy enough fix, get the new gaskets and install them at the oil change. QUESTION TIME!!!!!!
why do I see 4 caps on the bike and 2 in the drawing. is it just the perspective of the drawing or are they different caps. I just want to order the right parts for the little lady.

I direct you to part #7...I think...
THANKS!!!!

should be just 2 and you do not have to do a oil change to replace the little gaskets, i did not.

oh you had the incorrect diagram, should be #23 is the one that leaks.

three seals replaced, no more leaks...thank the gods that the tensioner on the forward cyl wasnt leaking, that would have been one hell of an undertaking.

No. I just put it back in. What do you mean "reset"?

What happens?

RE: Time to change the oil...and some gaskets?
Well... youre suppost to... on the customs..

Undo the bolt on the top of the tensioner and use a flat bladed screwdriver to turn and "pull back" that black plunger. Once you pull the plunger back you insert it back into the engine and tap on the tensioner till you hear a click. Thats the plunger pressing back onto the chain

If the chain is all loosey goosey the cam might become out of time with the crank. And itll either run like dump... or a piston will hit a valve

that may be just do its easier to put in? I had a hell of a time getting it in with the plunger out. no funny sounds or strange operation, and its been about 150 miles
