Damn Paul! i was checking to see how the bike was treating you, sure wasn't expecting this!
More insight for those who know these bikes, this is an R model. When it started using oil and smoking, my mechanic tore it down..if i remember correctly, the cylinder was fairly scratched, so we sent it to LA Sleeve to sleeve it to stock specs, but allow for boring in the future. A new stock piston was installed at the time. New cam chains, as they had stretched a bit, and an APE manual cam chain tensioner was added and new valves. It ran like this for two seasons, but then it started having gremlins in the electrical system, and most of those parts were replaced, biggest being the CDI and voltage regulator. Overheating was never an issue, granted it mostly ran at high elevations where it is cooler so it may not have shown it? I don't know if any of that helps, but thought it couldn't hurt to share, someone with more experience might be able to help Paul out. He is a good guy!
