If you use Wurth dry chain lube you don't get a build-up of crud like that. I've used it for years and it's well recommended by a lot of people on this forum, might be "Wurth"  :492:  switching from your current brand.

Found a crack in one of my Alloy bodied LED indicators.  Cleaned it, rub down and some araldite (2 part epoxy) and it's sealed.  Since it drys clear might not even spray it.  Will see.
Stupid is as stupid does.  Look Dad... No hands!!

LOL!.... :008:............Yes, l usually use any old brand of dry chain lube, but thinking back l did smear if with some chain grease l had sitting in the garage a couple of times last summer because l was all out of chain lube, so it's all down to operator error, but it will be well wurth my while sending for a couple of tins of this stuff just to try it out!

Checked the valve clearance , the first time for me i tried it myslf.
A big thx to muddy sump and your yt videos. you took the fear off me as an IT-guy :D

all were in specs , exhaust is on the tighter side but still in specs.

then i swapped the starter motor from 5440 to 5442 to prevent future failure ( got one cheap)

changed the spark plugs, air filter , lubed the stepper motor and refitted all together.

took all about 7 hours (one our for playing the find me, im a fallen hiding screw game , another hour for finding my tools.....
im really exhausted now but very proud for doing it myself

good night :D

(and sry for my bad english, not my mother language)

Tinkering is what happens when you try something you dont quite know how to do, guided by whim, imagination, and curiosity.

continued my big service.

Synced the throttle bodies and did an oil change.

the only thing left is to lubricate the headstock :) (will be also a first timer for me)

nice stickers btw !  :0461:
