I haven't had any problems like that.  Are you sure it isn't something
getting behind the rod and gumming up the back end, pushing the rod
outward?  Not that I've heard of that, either, but it somehow seems
slightly more likely.  Or something fubar over on the clutch basket

I have now had THREE magically self adjusting SVs show up.  The clutch adjuster at the end of the push rod ( on the left side of the motor, the little one with the threaded brass rod and the lock nut) has magically self tightened on three bikes. Anyone know why? Only seen it on Gen Twos. All three guys came in with slipping clutch.
