Thanks Tom for your detailed explanation, good stuff. May be able to kill 2 birds with 1 stone....if I leave oil in sump and tilt to right then oil and any shavings will/may come out...just need to order a left case gasket I suppose?
Bike came from US with some usual mods, up sized front disc (rotor), centre stand, happy trail panniers, progressive front springs (not installed). I can imagine that US owner may have done Doo having spent all the other money. Had an 87 A1 UK klr that had stainless exhaust, k&n filter etc that I borrowed the parts off, getting bike pretty sorted now.
Thanks for the info lads,
