looking at a '90 PC
Written by pc800dork on 11/30/2010 at 08:31 pm

The Cam Plugs aren't easy, but they are doable. The savings over what the parts
cost and the labor that a shop will charge are HUGE.

I did mine and I am certainly no bike mechanic. And I did them on a blanket in
a gravel driveway...

If you decide to do them yourself, then consider replacing all hoses, seals and
o-rings while you are at it. Get it all done at once and be FREE!

ps - 73,000 mi isn't too much to consider, but I wouldn't pay a lot for a PC
with that many miles.

I saw a 1990 PC for sale with 73,000 miles on it. It looks very clean, plastics are good, well maintained throughout it's life but the present owner says it drips a drop or two of oil, and the shop that just serviced it thought it was coming

    Some people have had theirs leak for a long, long time without it getting worse. Mine started leaking shortly after I bought it. It turned out to be mostly coming from the gear shifter seal (took me a long time to diagnose) but I also replace

    That is fantastic Marc. Most of the bike loose oil a bit. Mine does that sometimes. A newspaper underneath and problem solved (it can still be the oilfilter that is leaking). The clutch cylinder is a common cause but should be maintained anyh
