If it ain't broke don't fix it?
before I get started may I first thank all who contributed to my last thread about my sticking clutch as after a strip down, plates boil (plewsy style) and careful setting up it is now snicking into gear in the morning with no problems at all, although the cols weather and salty roads have put paid to riding for 3 or so months!
So I have started to draw up the list of winter jobs! Most of them are fairly trivial cosmetic stuff. I have one engine job to complete (take of the exhaust rocker box and helicoil one of the outer 1/4 unc threads) but I am also contemplating replacing the crank feed oil seal in the timing cover. My bike shows no signs of low oil pressure, the only reason I am possibly going to do this is as the bike is fairly new to me (9 months) I don't know it's condition/age.
So.......It ain't broke! But should I fix it?
My rational is,
1. If it does fail, big damage may occur.
2. It is cheap and easy to do.
3. Peace of mind once done.
Am I mad?
