THE CRANKCASE.COM - Peter came over from Cologne just as we were finishing the 851 maintenace, which meant that we could all go out for a ride together.

THE CRANKCASE.COM - Clearances for the exhaust valves front and rear were spot on as hoped and expected.
Which means I can wait until next year to make a more thorough check on all valves.
THE CRANKCASE.COM - Timing belts were also replaced.
The previous owner had had them changed before selling the bike. But it's always a good idea to keep them fresh on the 4 valve motors.
