oh, crap, sorry about the small images. tinypic wouldn't allow me to see a larger version....arg and ugh and, well, you know. last pic: children, please keep parents under supervision.
after the ride, with about 4038 now on the odo, i changed the oil. i use valvoline 4-stroke 10-40 which meets MOM's requirements, and purolator filters. i did not change the crush washer due to a 2013 thread concerning,, er, um, whether to replace crush washers. got everything put back together, let'r run a few minutes. oil is now a tad below full line. no apparent leaks.
ready to ride tomorrow, which is supposed to be cooler, but sunny again. woot!
