Re: 30K Miles on Replacement Engine in '88        

I tried installing a new cam chain without splitting the cases, and it just wouldn't go, without pulling sprockets...

I was lucky enough to find a guy that buys the cam chain in long lengths, and has a tiny little chain break/pin pusher-outer thingy, and he made one to length for me, just had to carefully pop it back together once it was threaded through...

so far i've gotten about 13.5K km out of it without any sign of problems, i've had the clutch cover off and (by hand, plugs out) turned the motor over and checked it... it still looks perfect...

oh, and Bill, thanks for the update, hopefully we can all experience long lasting bikes... not worrying seems to make the ride that much more enjoyable,

safe riding, take care...
