Brand new project..
I bought this 91 XL yesterday as a donor for my next bike - I degreased her and steam-cleaned the motor as it was stained with an unknown fluid, warmed the motor up and took her out for a test ride. I stopped after 10 or so miles and checked for oil leaks - just a minor front rocker cover dribble so that was cool. I gave the bike a bit of hammer along the Coast Highway next - and she hauls ass - seems like a real strong motor in her.. I got home and had another quick look for leaks - all good so I made the deal!
