Just wanting to give an update. Bike made journey home successfully. Other than a small couple of oil leaks she's doing fine. 1500+ miles down and going good.

Thanks again everyone!

Glad to hear that ! :)

Forums do work... and more helpful than a dealer... free knowledge is the best! ;)

Happy riding :) !

I agree. Get a good valve spring compressor.

Just found a tool for removing valve seals without a compressor, Looks like it would work great and there are comparable tools for less than this one!
