I think I might go for a ride on the WR tomorrow, haven't had it out in a while.
Think y'all are doing it wrong. Only time my 09 XCW leaked was after I cracked the sidecase. Probably from smacking it into a rock. Still runs like a charm. Other than changing that sidecase, I haven't cracked the motor open. I think I might inspect the top end this winter. Lol.

I've changed a few inner clutch cover gaskets, and we sell a lot of them. Maybe the small bike cover gasket seals better?

The new Goldenseal magazine has an article on the old railroad on Blue Creek. I've ridden quite a bit of the old rail bed, but sometime I'd like to start at Hitop and retrace as much as possible.

There are still several sketchy ass bridges you can ride across too!

Had a close call out near Jerry's Run yesterday, crested a gravel hill and all that was in front of me was chrome grille. A semi with a low boy trailer, found a small area to get by.

Mainly been pedaling. Have about 800 miles on the CX bike so far, still trying to get my legs back.

Well I pulled the FD on the GS apart and the inner clutch case on the XC. Surprisingly the GS will be the cheaper fix provide I decide to buy gaskets for the XC rather than silicon. The FD looks good, just needs a new seal and I suppose I'll put a new o-ring on it while I'm in there, but the main output seal was the culprit. The XC... I don't know, I think I may just silicon it first and see how that goes. Truly gaskets are a band-aid for crappy tolerances when machining. I know almost, if not all, motorcycle manufactures use them for clutches etc. But when you split your case... what gasket is in the middle? None. Because it's machined properly, reason being other tolerances rely on it being machined correctly and you can't afford to have variances you would undoubtedly have if a gasket was used. Only gasket that should have to be used in an engine is the head gasket That's it in my book, the rest should be machined true enough to seal with a light coat of silicon. Anyhow... nuff of my rant... no manufacturer will ever meet my specs so no use in whining.
