I'm loosening my religion.
Lick. Good move.

I "loosened" my religion so much I lost it back in the late 1950s.

Re: UTT Master Cylinder pressure light

That is a fluid level light. You may want to check the level.

Trim about a hundred pounds off that pig and you may have something.

Re: Stuck ignition switch

WD-40 is great for drilling,taping,machining, aluminum.
It doesn't leave a mess or stain like some other cutting and taping fluids.
If you need lube use Triflow with teflon.

Re: Oil in cylinders

The cylinders and pistons need to be pulled and inspected.
You may find some interesting things there, cylinder bore distortion,
excess clearance, broken or very worn rings. Some 1000cc cylinders
don't do well with O/S boring.

Re: 1977 R75/7 sat for for too long

It can be bored to fit 800cc pistons. You may want to check the availability and price. Used 800cc cylinder assys. from those that have converted to 1000cc may be available. Look around.
