Hey friend I see you've been a member for quite a while and thanks for the reply of information I'm new as you can see I've always had a motorcycle but now that I'm starting to try and fix them myself it takes a lot of guts to tear down a carburetor or attempt to replace a clutch I'm not going to even think about trying to adjust the valves and don't laugh but what is cct replacement?
Hey again friend I forgot to mention that as my carburetor was ajusted better the ticken seem to get better anyway now I'm having a problem with either the clutch slipping or my transmission what is a good way to tell if it's one or the other?
CCT would be your cam chain tensioner. They wear out over time and you'll hear some excessive chain movement which can sound like ticking.
The best way to check the clutch is to inspect and measure the plate stack, but sounds like you may not be comfortable with that. There are service manuals on the forum for download that you could read through to get an idea of what's involved. What exactly is happening that leads you to believe the clutch or tranny is slipping?

Now when I took out the oil I see there is a lot of water in it.
Anyway all the oil is out and I see the cooling water is empty.
Now I have not added new oil...

I ended up buying some Lucas carburetor cleaner in the little white bottle at Walmart for $9 and some change and let me tell you the one that says if it says Lucas it works that is no lie it performed a miracle on my carburetor it had been sitting up for 2 years I've always put gas stabilizer...
