Re: Gasket leaking - dry or wet ?

If you cleaned the cover and crank case surface good the gasket should be ok dry. I use a little grease on a few spots just to hold it in place when assembly. To find where it is leaking, cleaning the area good and spray some foot powder on it. Its really easy to find where the oil is coming from. S...

Re: Forward controls for XV's

Re: Forward controls for XV's

I have recently purchased a 1985 XV1000 but have found with my knee replacements that I would benefit from forward controls and foot rests.
