I recently also found a stripped lifter set bolt (I am probably responsible for that one) and pulled out the helicoil on the right side valve cover center bolt (that was fixed with a nut ground down and slipped into the outside of the head and jb welded in place). Couple that with my starter issue, battery fail, and alternator failing and I have had a rather stressful several months with this bike.

But now she is purring like a milk faced kitten and sooooo much nicer to ride now than the last 2.5 years and 24k miles
