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?

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.

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.
