Has anyone else had this problem? I was riding last Saturday and I noticed a change in the way my engine sounded. I looked down and saw that one of the two Half Moons on the left side head cover gasket had blown out. I have no idea what to think at this point. Any advice? I just bought a new gasket but am hesitant to install it until I know why the original one blew out. :naughty:

Pinched breather hose no doubt.
Mine kept blowing out the countershaft seal till I unpinched it.

Make sure the hose is open and blowing strong when you rev the motor.
