That is wild !
And yes the same can happen on our bikes. But being in the open air they get cooling air better than inside an enclosure.

That tiny return port hole on the bikes have caused a lot of guys to have brake seizing and it its so small it can be overlooked.

I thought that was normal for the 670? Nice classic sled though.

I see you frequent another forum I spend a lot of time on. DooTalk.

Yeah, the 670s are known for hard starting.. in northern Illinois it's just not worth having a new sled with the limited amount of snow we get. We are planning some northern Wisconsin trips for next winter tho!

Yep! That's me over on DooTalk as well!

As an update, tank is fixed and went for a ride.. everything was going great until I put it into third gear and it promptly slid right back into second... The second engine I got with it was original to the bike with under 7k miles on it and the previous owner had disassembled alot of it. I have no idea how many miles are on the engine in it now. The plan was to take my time and repaint and polish the original engine that has been put on the fast track now. It sucks waiting for paint to dry..but it's getting there!
