How did you go? FWIW I had a similar problem before and opened the unit. There's a clamped ring around that keep both sides together which had to be pried open with a small screw driver. However servicing the inside without success and replaced the unit

I hope that's not the "Daughter Bought" tee shirt in those pics Charlie!-Talking tee's,I have been collecting a few vintage shirts
(pre 1980's)recently-golly they knew how to make tees in those days.A couple of years back I picked up a vintage Coca Cola shirt,it was brand new and I paid less than $20 for it,saw the identical shirt sold on e-bay recently for $130.

Looks like a head set. Two intake, two oil jet, eight valve stem seals.

Would not have a clue what they belong to, but you have 8 valve stem seals in there.

So you got anything with eight valves ??

Not sure if the larger O rings could be for under the valve covers on the CX's  - maybe if you measured one of them and let us know the sizes??

Hi I was doing a "stocktake" of all the o-rings and came across the pack in the pictures that I couldn't identify. I was able to check/find all others on several websites. Can someone please tell me what ''tis kit is for? Thanks

Well thought I might keep the same shirt on as yesterday - may as well break it in completely.

Started out trimming the front hedge. That took about an hour from start to finish - up and down a small step ladder again - but only 2 steps - so easy enough. Electric hedge trimmer did a great job  - even looked OK when it was finished.

Ducked over to supercheap auto to buy some oil to give the Turbo a change. Got all ready and managed to carry out a warm up then drain - and in between took the time to dremel the filter cover with some scotch brite type wheels, used two of them - but didn't force the tool just let it sit on the cover and moved it about - with even a small amount of pressure - they fail pretty quick.

Then did a very quick run on the polishing wheel with just some white rouge - spent about 10 minutes or so - not really looking for a mirror shine - just a bit - and it came up OK. Few photos of before during and after..

Actually forgot I polished the oil filter bolt after I cleaned the paint and rust off it as well... woo hoo

Thanks for your responses guys, nothing like a bit of moral support   lol

Well it happens every so often - I get yelled at for wearing grubby clothes around on weekends etc,, and I'm definitely no fashion statement either.

Happened that I put on a new Tshirt (my daughter brought it back from the USA) - its a Mickey Mouse from Disneyland... well I'm sure the gunk will wash out - we all have to get dirty sometimes... haha

Ian, the fluid that came out - was not oily - it was the consistency of water - definitely no oil in it - but had a rusty tinge to it, I didn't think to put a container under it as wasn't expecting about a cup full to come out.

Chris, good to hear from you - hope the land of the long white cloud is treating you well. 

I might do some more polishing in the shed today (planning on the oil filter cover) and give the bike an oil change - now to find another new Tshirt.

cheers

Charlie

That gunk hose is about right on the Turbo & I think also on the CX500 Euro from memory.

It does seem to collect oil residue from the engine breather & then allow it to mix with condensation from the air cleaner to create a gooey sludge.

There are people who use a rag to clean it instead of their shirt.   lmao lmao lmao
