the odo says the bike has about 36k on it, but im not sure if this is accurate. i inherited this machine from my father who took great care of it, but may have done a rebuild or something that would affect the actual reading (he was always working on his bike).

"Or you can replace the /6 breather with the later type leaf type breather. None of this will resolve an issue of excess blow by." does this mean the excess in the ventilation unit itself is a symptom, not the cause?

also, last time i pulled my plugs and advanced the pistons, with a flashlight, i noticed both pistons were black- is this normal wear for a bike this old? or does this tell me i have a "mucho dinero" job in store like biebs?

darnit, i just wanted to ride this spring!!!!
