The engine was rebuilt previously, about ~4,500 miles ago. It runs like new, and has excellent compression, real easy to start, mos of the time.
It just leaks so much oil and its hard to keep the engine clean. I do a lot of trail riding so that just covers the motor in sand and it just cakes on after a few rides
Hard to keep the bike clean commuting on it and working full time. I usually just wash the engine
