I discovered that the oil leak from the head isn't really that bad. The brakes work great. And there are no insurmountable issues with a hot restart.
The concerns that this trip generated are only a few.
- First, at about 45mph on gradual deceleration downhill, the front suspension goes into an oscillation. The symptom is very repeatable. I'm not sure if this is a damping problem with the forks, or if my front wheel is slightly out of balance. Re-balancing the front wheel will be the first treatment.
- Secondly, the clutch needs adjusted slightly when warm to insure proper disengagement. The gearbox got slightly "clunky" when it was hot, which tells me that there was a little bit of drag and the shifts weren't happening cleanly.
Overall the trip was a complete success. Everyone was intrigued by KYL95 and it performed like the engineering marvel it was built to be.
