195,759 miles. 3/20/2020. #42 Oil & Filter chg. Chevron Delo SDE SAE 15-40 Purolator L14612
Oil leakage found coming from Exhaust valve adjustment port cap. O-ring is flat.
Oil drained down to kick stand side of cylinders for the most part, but some oil ran straight down and dripped onto the lower fins..
The o-rings were from ACE replaced in May 2015 at 162K miles. Maybe under-sized...
I went to Honda Dealer, no "91303-KK3-830" in stock. Counter kid said would have to lookup the 12mm aluminum drain plug washers. BYE!
NAPA had the alum washers, HF had a box of o-rings. I put on one 35mm o-ring, a little fat. Honda is 35x3 HF is 35x3.5
Will see how this fat mama works! The other 0-ring replaced.
I used some degreaser and water hose pressure to rinse. Looks good.

I wish I would have created a daily ride log.
2007 I have only one ride in my "MC Rides" folder. Hal's ride Asheville to Chimney Rock > Lake Lure > a gas stop in SC > I bailed out in Brevard, NC. I was next to Kevin for awhile and his de-cel explosions were killing me.

Actually, I keep the same kind of records for all our vehicles, since I do all the maintenance anyway. Traded in the wifes Murano last year for a Subaru Outback. Gave them my notes to go with the Murano and they said this is like gold. I guess so since it keeps you off a trail already traveled ;)

Thanks for the reminder! I forgot to add last vehicle oil change.

New tires on the X.
14th FRT-- 204,191 Bridgestone Exedra 9/30/2021 DOT CJ6D (PEC5120)
18th REAR tire -- 204,191 Bridgestone Exedra 9/30/2021 DOT ENXD (CAN4020)

Front tire wobble for past 1.5 years, suspect a pothole caused it.
OK when tire warmed up after a few miles.
New Bridgestone tires seem to be good. I have to check air pressure, it could be too high.
Curvey Girl valves installed. $60 to Mount & Balance tires
