    I decided to change the leaking pushrod seal and bushing. After I reassembled it is when my problems started. I've set the worm gear and purch settings and still have problems.

    I figured it out. I sat back and drank a Stella. I didn't let the engine warm up. After I did that it I started over with the adjustment and its perfect. I using the stock setup for know. And the best part no leaks.

    For some reason the clutch is the only thing on these bikes that have always messed with my head. I'm used to Hondas setup I guess.
