    Working on my own scoot now, found some leakage

    Got the new springs for the Hayden tensioner so I threw that back in, then began poking around and found some leakage - looks like it's either rocker cover gasket or rocker box gasket on the rear cylinder. While I have it open, drilling the oil return holes on rocker supports bigger and putting in those rockout rocker shaft inserts. Gonna readjust the pushrods as well. Been chasing some top end clatter so I hope this will all quiet things down some.

    All back together. I found the rear rocker box gasket to be in bad shape. Looked melted. Replaced both front and rear for good measure. I'll take it for a test ride tomorrow. Sounded better when I started it.

    Good job. That gasket definitely was shot.
    My memory's not as sharp as it used to be.
