    I haven't put much effort into figuring this out, but thought I would share before I tear into it since I have so many things going on the bike and could use a head start and maybe get the parts on the way from WSW.

    While working on everything else I saw this. Rocker box, valve cover, not sure. This is the rear cylinder.

    I just did the same repair on Postman's bike, the gasket between the cylinder and the rocker box is blown. You can take care of it with the engine still in the frame if you are willing to cut a few allen wrenches and are mechanically inclined.
    As Curtis at Wild Steed pointed out, this can be performed without collapsing the pushrods by removing the pushrod covers and rotating the cylinder until the piston is at Top Dead Center. At this point you can remove the rocker assembly and the rocker boxes. Reassembly is effortless since you will not have to readjust the pushrods. Good luck, lots of help available on this forum.
