So, I've been riding the bike with no issues until yesterday.  When I left for work, I thought the bike sounded a little noisier (internal engine).  By the time I got home from work, it sounded like a 1994 Cummins with 300k on the odometer.  I'm going to tear everything back down, hoping that it's a loose timing chain, or maybe one of the shims grenaded.  What are your thoughts on re-using gaskets?  I know the side case gasket will have to be replaced because it's paper, but how about the rubber gaskets? With only a few thousand miles would they be usable, or should I just err on the side of caution and buy them again?

It's a lot of work to get in there as I have done the 20k service definitely change all gaskets and you also need threebond 1215 or equivalent for the cam cover gasket. Good luck.
