Re: speed VS rpm.survey,1980/1 GL's

well, my gl does 60 on 4 rpm, exactly like yours,@DenverWinger
speed limit would be 60-70 depends on the road,
sweet spot is defiantly 60 on 4rpm, and on colder days 70 on 4.5 rpm

Re: oil from weep hole!?oil pressure too high?

if its not a valve how does it operate? whats keeping air from being sucked in, instead of being pushed out?
can i ask for a cleaning method? if blocked, how do i address the problem? does the breather detach from the cranckcase or is it permanent?
thanks
