Have used Seafoam for 15 yrs plus with zero discoloration to anything. And in my 2stk with powervalves I no longer have to clean them between top ends. And bike has sat for up to nine months due to illness or injury and starts and runs fine. I will continue to use it with every batch of premix.

If the engine gets really hot the valve seat may come loose. When it cools down it will stick on the hole again. Eventually it will get so loose that it will fall or break up into pieces.

I got a bit bored on saturday night and decided to put the new stickers on my xl600rmg. Tank stickers, a sticker on the front guard, and pro-link stickers on the swingarm.
What could go wrong???
Well, now when l turn on the ignition, the main 20amp fuse blows immediately. From putting on new stickers? WTF?
Obviously a short somewhere, but no idea where to start looking. Might unplug everything, and start connecting things one at a time until fuse blows again. Gotta love old bike electrics, not.

Interesting. Did fuse blow only when blinkers were used, or as soon as ignition was turned on? I ask this because l bodged up a blinker that was missing a bit. Seemed to work ok at the time.
That'll be the first thing l disconnect.

Well l just walked out into the garage, and had a good look at the bike. All switches were in the off position, except for the kill switch. Mmmm, I wonder. Turn kill switch to on, put in new fuse and bingo! Ignition on, fuse doesnt blow, lights work, engine starts. Turn kill switch off and engine dies and fuse blows. Prior to this, the kill switch didnt work at all, and now its blowing the main fuse. What is going on????

It sounds like you somehow have the kill switch wired into the battery power. It should only be wired to the ignition circuit.

I would need to see a wiring diagram to see if it is different than the XL's over here, but on the XL here the ignition is run from the stator independent from the battery/fused circuits. The kill switch merely grounds the ignition wire to shut off the bike, so it is a ground circuit. All I can imagine is it got crossed with the fused D/C circuit.

I got my swingarm bearings in with the help of the motion pro tool. I had to tap them in as the threaded device was too short but the bearing installer does a great job of holding them properly and they tap in pretty smoothly.

What are you guys doing for a lower chain slider when the original falls apart? Can a roller be bolted into the same place?

I put a roller on mine once on the front and hated the noise of it, so went back to a slider. Rear slider near the sprocket was still available from Honda last I needed one. There is always eBay too.
