Last previous oil/filter chg was 5/16/2017 180,596
5,381 miles later another oil change.
185,977 5/13/2018 40th oil chg. 4qts- Mobil Delvac 15w-40 Diesel Engine oil; Purolator L14612.
Removed seat and found rear bolt was at a strange angle. Not bolted in.
Checked slide valve diaphragm--small splits, could be some of my backfires on hard take off.
K-72 diaphragm ordered from JBM Industries, $28 total. I applied Ultra gray RTV to the small splits for the time being.
A/F screw could not be turned, two - .22 shells made...No luck. I did the "SCAR"mod, cut the tit back a bit.
When putting slide back in it wanted to go behind the main jet--had to set it into the main jet holder orifice.
Removed carb heat hoses, manifold still has coolant hoses attached.
Getting old--forgot to connect gas hose to carb... Removed tank and airbox, Checked fuel screen in carb hose fitting-immaculate.
Fuel bowl had a slight film on it, very clean. Put tank back on, fuel hose will not reach petcock.
Removed tank again, checked hose, the ends are at the correct locations.
Sweating profusely in the afternoon, appears to be a major leak in my skull. Glasses covered with sweat.. Cannot see worth a crap..
When the X is on the sidestand I seem to have more tank issues. Installed tank again and all fit correctly. Installed new vacuum hoses.
All day rain did not happen, got to fill tank, ride to grocery store, seemed to perform very well.
