    Hey Norm, kits been awhile. How are things in Asheville? VA is beautiful. I have a question for you. On my '02 M750. I put a new counter shaft sprocket on and removed the , I think it was the release cylinder to get access to the front sprocket. I reassembled every thing but now the clutch won't engage. Any ideas. I have been I'll and have not ridden for about a month and some one told me the clutch plates can stick together sometimes after an extended park? Just need some direction. Wife had some friends who just moved close to Asheville might be coming there in the spring.

    I'm not sure what all they do at 6 months, but 2 valve ducs are about as cheap as they come for maintenence. The most expensive would be valves (if they do that at 6k). If you where closer, I'd show you how to do it. It takes a couple of hours (if you need to change any shims) but is really simple.
    Healthwise, I'm doing fine, thanks for asking. With any luck I'm be in Daytona again this March.

    I'm not very brand loyal, but any of the tractor oils. They don't have the same emisions control so they have better additive packages. Synthetic is best but not as important as most people think. 10-40, 15-50, anything in that general range.

    My health is making the jungle drum rounds these days?? I'm OK, a few of my organs are thinking about moving on without me but I'm on an every 3 month "watch" and so far, so good.
    Now, back to more fun stuff - those temps are fine, I forget the upper limit, but, as said before, I wouldn't rely on one of those gauges for anything critical. If it gets up another 30-50 degrees, just slow down for awhile.

    when I am really "riding" the temps fluctuate between 205 and 220 is that right and what is the high tolerence. I just don't want to damage my bike. i saw the post about your health is every thing ok? have a great day and thanks for taking the time to give me some advice
