disston....great description of what I need to do and just where the problem(s) might be. I was out in the garage a bit earlier this evening and saw the plug you're referring to on the backside (actually the frontside
) of the cluster. Hadn't noticed the little plug before. Since I quit drinking about 15 years ago I think I qualify to do the repairs since, as you put it, "any sober person can do it". I liked that! I'll try not to be too ham-fisted either.
I might see how the day goes tomorrow and give it a go. If not tomorrow, it'll have to wait about a week since my wife and I are leaving Sunday on our '83 Gold Wing for about a 6 day trip to Asheville, NC.to see the Biltmore Mansion and whatever else we might decide to look at along the way. I understand Deals Gap isn't too far away, but I just don't know if I want to strain myself so much by riding something like that two-up on a packed-up Gold Wing. We'll see.
