Well I just wrapped up the valve adjustment on my VF500F. That was a chore. I've done valves on my VW Beetle before, but this is the first time on a bike. Ugh. Just glad it's over. 2 things though: One - the valves definitely needed adjusting, I heard them clicking and clacking like crazy. So now my bike appears to be running a lot cooler (possibly from dumping and draining the radiator (though I had -JUST- flushed it 200 miles prior, and it had no affect on temperature). It's just way cooler. Is that because the valves were way off? Two - Since I had to pull the alternator cover, I now am leaking oil out of the alternator cover. So apparently I need to replace the gasket. Does liquid gasket maker work as a good replacement, and if not - what's the best place to get parts for this old bike?
