Stan, thanks for the heads up, no go get some hours on that bike! Gray, thanks for the information. He must have done some stopping, starting at the crest because even the breather tube had sand in it all the way up to the port on the valve cover. Im making up a new breather tube this week at work, and ill get it installed this weekend when I go home. The main bearings are my biggest concern as well, along with the cylinder walls. I hope he never changed a plug the way it was, cuz who knows how much sand would have gotten into the cylinder upon removal...But im hoping the main/rod bearings will be ok. I was already planning on taking a close look at the oil filter when I changed the oil. I was looking to do it this past weekend to get that sand out, if there's much in that motor, and thats when I noticed the leak out of the tensioner. With that tensioner, is it just a simple pull it out, and put it back in? I see the manual states something about winding it back up, so I assume its just an automatic spring inside of that tensioner? I have only worked with the tensioner on old honda 350's, and I assume that this one is pretty different. I just wanted to make sure I can get it back in and bolted up ok with no binding on the tensioner or worry that the cam chain isn't loose with no tension placed on it.
