Yeah something like that! Still kickin' myself but have had a couple of people who know their stuff say it can be fixed, so there's hope. I need to have a chat to a man about a horse...
ended up getting #20 pilots and #140 mains. no mids.

so when I receive them they'll be available for 20 dollars that's w/ shipping. I go through paypal. either post here or PM me.

a million but for a months time, you have to sleep in a different location each night. without tv or wifi or smartphone or tablet. your only source of comms is a landline. and you travel via greyhound. ( or whatever insterstate or travel bus lines operate in your location)

Yes, I'd do that. Honestly, I would probably do that for much less than a million lol.

A million dollars but you can no longer use your legs for transportation. You technically still have the ability to walk or run, as in nothing is physically wrong with your legs or spine. You are magically bound to not be able to use any method of leg-powered transportation. You are also not allowed use a wheelchair (because otherwise, this just becomes a million dollars but you have to use a wheelchair). Instead, you must be carried like a baby by a large bodyguard type person. He/she is always nearby and is not annoyed or offended by any carrying requests. They will lift you up, carry you where you need to go, and then set you down. You may, however, crawl, walk on your hands, monkey-bars, etc.

What's the 'button and a piece of wire' solution?

That's the one where you take the high tension lead off the cylinder that's fouling the plug with oil then you put a piece of wire through to opposite holes in a button as per image below. What you've ended up doing is create a gap in the wire made by the button, the spark has to jump that gap, the effect of this is to make the plug run hot enough to burn the oil of the plug. I can confirm that it worked. Plug did not foul the entire journey home, whereas I was having to take it out and clean it every hundred miles or so.

@J_Walker - whoops, that was a slight oversight on my part.  Gasket kit would be all I'd get.  I tried looking at one of the forum posts regarding Haynes vs. Clymer but it seems to have been taken down or broken link? So from a perspective of someone who would need a lot of visual aid and more laymans explanation than some youtube videos, which would you recommend? Also the Clymer only seems to go to 2002 GS - from memory there's no difference from 2002 onwards yes?

@gruntle - I've actually been thinking about putting a kit together for just such an emergency.  My mate who had a Yamaha XJ6N had a buttload of stuff in his seat....have no idea where to stash it for mine, call me crazy but I look at the cavity under the seat and I don't think it would fit.  Or am I missing something??
get a spare clutch lever and tuck it under your seat - you'll want to kiss me when you need it!
From a quick glance. you have valve seals posted under cams, but then you have a whole engine gasket kit, that comes with valve seals, so take off the solo valve seals and use the ones that come in the engine gasket kit.

edit; same as the exhaust gaskets you have below, they are in that engine gasket kit.

edit 2; not sure you really NEED the whole clutch plate housing. replacing the padded plates, themselves should be fine however I have not followed your build. maybe replace the steel ones too, but only if they are warped or blued.
