As I just told @retro, it sure does. I would say it's one of those things I could check off my bucket list but I never planned to do this.... it just sort of evolved. Now, going to Texas on a Heli-hunt for wild hogs.... that's on my list..... LMAO

Great job! N Thanks for the update!

I had to go back and view your two pics on page one.... ^^^ I'm in total agreement on a completely clean bike/frame... At least twice a year...i Go over EVERY inch (what i can get to) without the plastics coming off.

I use K&N filter cleaner; works great.

The manual says something about wetting the newly cleaned/dried filter in gear oil. I just spray it lightly with K&N filter charger oil

you may see the air filter start to get crumbly; itís well past useful life by then.

owners manual says to use clean ( new ) engine oil from what i've always read.

I just drained the rear diff oil. I used a small white plastic container. It looks like it has black "sludge" in it. When I tilt the container the oil looks yellowish at the edge with black stuff mixed in. Is this normal????
