Thanks dude! The urge to go full hack and slash Cafe is strong, but I think eventually I'll just strip it down and clean it up a little. I figure there's plenty of 360s out there I can tear up, but this is the first year of this little bike and I should probably just leave it as a survivor haha.

Heyo, not done yet haha.

Looks like I've got a couple oil leaks to sort out. One of them is just coming from the cover over the clutch, so I'm going to replace that gasket and make sure those surfaces are flat.

The other is coming from behind the circlip on the rod attached to the shift lever. I remember putting it back together and thinking that the clip was a little wonky, and it looks like I was right.

My issue here is I'd really like to replace the rubber gasket that goes around the rod, but I can't find it on the CMSNL website. The shifter rod is a "rod clutch", PN 22903200000, but there's no mention of the gasket anywhere.

Any ideas?

Can't edit for some reason, but here's a picture of the thing. This stuff is all filthy and I'm gonna tear it down in a couple months to clean it all so don't judge me haha.

This is the "shift shaft seal" apparently and I need that rubber o-ring. I'll probably just get all three of them and do them all at once if I can find them.
