Evos:I am pretty sure my front rocker gasket has a minor leak from the square breather hole at the top. It stains the area around the front spark plug with a little oil. The other place it seems to be leaking from is the front and it is getting the very front at the bottom of the engine cases a little greasy.I think for now I can just use a little gunk or solvent and a rag or brush and clean the area and keep a close eye.My question is with the bike running so well, I'd rather ride than tear it down. If I'm not mistaken, I'll need to run the tank dry or drain it of gas. Then disconnect the hoses, and mounting bolts. Take off the tank then I should be able to work on pulling the rocker covers. both James and Cometic Gasket sets are similarily priced at approximately $27-$30 bucks at J & P cycles. Perhaps Harley would have a decent set as well.Also, I have the manual, so can do the work myself to save and learn.Is it possible to just tighten re-torque the rocker cover screws as an alternative.Not planning on a head rework or valve reseat at this time. Bike runs well, has passed both compression and leak down tests, has a mere 64K.Please advise, the leak is something I an live with for a while.Thanks in advance for all input.Oh and how much time should I allow to do a quality repair?Any difficulties I might encounter along the way?FLHS 90Rode to Pacific City yesterday along 101 here in Coastal Oregon. sunny, temp was 63.9 degrees in the afternoon.Yahoo!, Not Arizona or Florida, but warm and enjoyable.
