thanks.

If I put the 1/2 quart through the valve cap, should I put the other 2 quarts in the top tank? Or should I add more to the lower engine?

Also, valve adjustment is .004 and .005 inch for all valves? that's what my 1988 book said I think.


do the engine to frame bolts go through from left to right, or does it matter?

I'm missing my compression release lever. The cable was taped to the handlbars. I'll have to ebay it or something...

probably will wander out to the garage tonight, brave the cold, and do a few things.
