aiight, so i'm tired of the 650 marking its teritorry on the bottom of my pant legs so i ordered a gasket kit. not very familiar with bike motors, i'm an air coole vw guy (although i fucking hate that "scene" i still like the cars, but then again, i don't like any other fucker's car but mine.. ah, frustration) and besides the fact that it's air cooled, well, i'd be more comfortable taking the thing appart and changing the gaskets if the pistons were doing each other sideways instead of standing up.

anyway, how do y'all feel about changing the cam chain while i'm at it. i ask cause, well, i know it's supposed to be semi normal to hear the engine click but maybe it's too much.. i'm not sure, i don't know, that's why i'm asking.

Been into the aircooled VW scene since the early 90's. Had my bus since '92, had a squareback, a baja, built a Manx, a couple of performance 2-litre type 1's, one of which is in my bus right now. Same deal, still like my car but am sick of the scene. Quit driving my 40 year old VW to work, now I ride my 40 year old Honda to work.

Sorry, no cam chain advice. Just wanted to get in on the VW thing. Next...
