I'll do a leak down test. I never had to touch the seal on my 1970 Suzuki, it tested well and has been doing great for 8 months now.

If they leak they get changed out. I'll pop the head and see what the bore looks like. Compression is wicked good so unless it really needs something, I'll leave the bore alone.

Interesting to note on these old RT1's is that the shift shaft goes all the way through, splined on both sides. Can be left or right side shift. Great for vintage dirt tracking.
