The weather here in central Illinios, USA has been really cold, windy, rainy and even snowy. In short, shit weather. Anyway, I went to visit the Commando and I discovered a leak from my kickstart seal. Checked through my box of spares and found a new one. I’ve read that the seal can be removed with the outer cover installed. I couldn’t do it that way however and had to remove the outer cover to replace the seal. No problem there. The real fight comes in the refitting of the outer cover itself. Maneuvering that ratchet plate assembly into that knuckle pin roller is a real bitch. Buttoned it all up and filled with gear oil. Ready to rock!
