OY!

Found out why it didn't smoke like all the other XL's I've heard about. Something to do with it only having about 1/2 a quart of oil! I changed the oil and started it up. What a smokeshow! It put out more smoke than I can make with my SS' back tires! So it looks like I'll be doing the top end while I've got it apart to fix first gear. (That and the valve cover leaks like crazy!)

Anyone know the cheapest place to get a complete gasket set, piston, valve seals and guides?
