Yeah, I'm cheap... er, a tightwad. There doesn't seem to be much, if any wear on the electrodes.

Yeah, might be a little rich. Unless you want to tear into the carb, I wouldn't worry about it.
I would clean them, check the gap, and put them back in on my bike. :D

You may be right about the stickers saying gasoline. It's one of those things you see but don't really pay much attention to.

I just looked up the placarding rules. If it is less than 1,001 lbs. no placards are required, so you would be fine.

I wouldn't go drilling holes in it if it were mine. Suck as much oil out through the filler as you can and refill. It should be good to go for 100,000 miles then. The oil in a standard transmission...

If that bottom bolt that mounts the tail housing is not in a blind hole, you may be able to remove it and drain the oil. If not you will have to pump the oil out of the filler.

I agree on checking the woodruff key. It is very easy to push them out of the slot when putting on the damper. Sometimes they don't even get pushed out, just cocked up enough to stop the damper.
