Thanks guys for the support!

Thanks for the feedback. I forgot all about updates. I am going to edit the first post with possible updates. I will start will looking at:
-Clutch Pushrod. I may consider shift drum as well as long as they are not too much $$$

What other engine updates should I look at to see if they have been done?

I have already replaced the balancer shaft seal after I first got the bike.

Thanks for the cam chain suggestion I will be adding that to the list

I have replaced the oil pressure sending unit. I am 90% sure the oil is from the base gasket. I found that post about the Pyndon Syndrome when I was trying to diagnose it. It seems to match about what mine is doing

I cant afford a new bike for a long while so I would rather get as many RELIABLE miles as possible out of this. I really feel the bottom end is robust in most modern engines so if I address the top end I really think I could get another 75k out of it. Still runs good, just some issues that require the engine to be pulled so I may as well fix as much as I can.

I will also be:
-checking wheel bearing
-swing arm bearing
-steering stem bearing
-electrical connectors/dialetic grease
-true wheels

Thanks guys keep it coming. Any idea of the condition of the heads for people that have had higher mileage engines apart?? That could be a big expenses and I am trying to get a budget figured out.
