I replaced some more engine gaskets on the CL450 today. It went smoothly. The engine isn’t leaking, but I ordered a gasket set and hex head screws to replace all the JIS screws and have been slowly swapping them in.

The inside of the case was very clean considering the bike will be fort-five years old next month. I find it cool to think how the last person to see this was a Japanese guy in 1972. Anyone know any tips to polishing up magnesium? I want to see if I can even out the finish on the engine covers.
