JOEYBADABOOM I hav a similar issue with my upper head gasket. Its just dry rotted due to age. I would recommend replacing it if its bad. Have your local Moto shop get it done. If anything, give your local shop a call and explain your issue. It may be something you may be able to take care of yourself.

BriansZ1000 I had mine checked and readjusted when I hit 60K. My valve cover gasket was leaking when this was done so it was replaced. Currently at 63K'ish miles.

Also while we’re here any input on a manual CCT vs stock automatic one
re: miles your manual recommends a valve clearance check at 15k miles.

re: CCT: I'm at 47k miles on the stock CCT, and @BriansZ1000 is at 60k, presumably also on the stock CCT. I wouldn't bother changing it.

JohnJuan That's a valve cover gasket. It may be leaking. Mine is, and I'm replacing it soon. If you need a valve clearance check, now is a good time for it.

Possible head gasket leak? Anyone experience?

Sometimes randomly there’s is a trail of dry white material coming out of appearing to be one of the rubber half circle things on the top of the side of the engine block.

Sometimes I’ll ride it hard no problems. Sometimes I’ll go ride after not riding s few days there it is. Any ideas?
