It's sucking the oil past the seal / dowel pin. BTDT. Check to see if maybe one of the pins fell out too. Steve

Thank you, Steve.  I'll keep that in mind when I check / adjust my valves in a few months.

HF platform lift
As said before The extra bucks are worth the saved knees
It has gotten so bad around here I put the bike on the lift just to check the air

This won't work.



I now have a Harbor Freight lift and agree it is the best way to go, but I know from personal experience, this type of lift can be used to lift a C10.  I used one to service my 2000. 

It has been several years, but as I recall I removed the belly pan and used a piece of 2 X 4 between the front jack lifting and the underside of the engine (oil pan) and rear jack lifting point placed under the lower shock mounting point.  The 2x4 acts a spacer to allow the jack fit in the narrower space. If you look under the bike this will make more sense. Ratchet straps were used to secure the bike to the jack and I also had a helper when raising and lowering. Once the bike is up and the ratchet straps tight it is very solid.

There used to be thread where a member - linby,  had posted photos of the exact steps I described above. Perhaps some of the veteran forum members remember this, I think it might have been before the forum split 10 or so years ago.

Florida Love bugs...
Forgot to mention from our last "Cove Ride" not thick and heavy yet, but they were out. This cold front arriving tomorrow through the next week may keep them at bay a bit longer. I haven't seen the semi trucks with them plastered all over them yet, but it's coming. My bike will lay low until they pass. Time for a few mods and some maintenance. :(

Ah yesm grew up in FL and escaped 30+ yrs ago. Awesome state to live in, but did not like the love-bug season.

I just wanted to add, and it's obvious in the google maps link above, that this is right on the edge of the Huron-Manistee National Forest.  So you left-coasters can enjoy some scenery on the way there - cough cough RWulf

I'm curious how many people actually have to add oil. I have a little over 56,000 miles on my 2011 and check my oil regularly. I do 5,000 mile oil and filter changes and have never seen the oil go down at all....stays exactly where it was after the last oil change. To think of adding a 1/2 quart would concern me.
I'm at 53K miles on my C14 and never have to add oil, which is cool by me!  :great:

Reservations at Holiday Inn had trouble finding the group rate when I made my reservation. If the website lodging page could be updated to reflect that the rally group is reserved under the name “KAW”, it would be useful.
Steve what are your travel plans? PM or email me. Going to work though CO on the way out.  :beerchug:
