Indicator of a healthy engine?
Changed the oil in the bike yesterday and pulled the screen, which I didn't do last time. Found just a few particles, one flake about the size of a pea split lengthwise and then cut in half, though not nearly that thick, just a flake. About three tiny metallic pieces, possibly part of a ring, and one tiny black piece, about pinhead size. So I'm hoping that means her engine is in good health.
Rode almost 150 miles today, she ran flawlessly. Had to get gas which unfortunately was ethanol, can't say I saw a big difference in performance but I did have to adjust the idle up a bit. So it would seem by that the ethanol really does have less energy.
