I Hate Gravel

As if going down in the stuff wasn't bad enough on the side of my bike, it had to get all up in the starter clutch when my case cover cracked.

I had cleaned most of it out, so I thought...


Nope. Glad I didn't throw the thing back together in this condition. I can imagine what all those little abrasive chunks would do to my poor engine had they stayed in there.

Finally got the thing all cleaned out and all the baked on 13 year old gasket off. It is finally ready to go back together.

I guess its time to find someone with a tube bender and fabricate some case guards for this thing.
