Great to hear and look forward seeing you again!
Hey Terry,
4 months from being fully recovered from my 2nd hip replacement and doing great.  Planning to pick up the 2014 on Saturday 7/14, narrowed it down to 2 at this point.  Looking forward to riding with ya'll again.
Haven't heard from you in a while, how are you doing?

Do you already have your Valkyrie? 
The Garage / 1986 V65 Magna clutch fluid leak
« Last post by Huggybear56 on July 02, 2018, 06:31:04 PM »
Hi all ... my first post.  In March I bought an 86 V65 Magna with 18k original miles, original paint, original chrome, a bike in very good appearance condition.  rode it a couple of times on less than 10 mile runs when I realized there were serious brake issues.  so I started working on it.  It runs well ; a little carb spitting but some Seafoam should help that.  a couple days ago I squeezed the clutch ... no fluid.  no puddle under the bike either.  My question ... after studying the shop manual and reading a few posts ... can the slave cylinder leak its fluid past the pushrod seal into the crankcase ?  I am currently rebuilding all the brakes ... then I'll tackle the clutch problem.  Any advice from those with experience is appreciated. 
7/15 Update - the parts bike is sold, along with the spare tire and jacket, so only the nicer bike and hydraulic lift remain. $2900

Price for both bikes reduced to $3250 (see terms below), or I’ll sell the ’98 parts bike for $500 (I have two interested parties) and the rest for $3000.  I sold the jacket yesterday.
