Promised pics, Dan,   Expect  to have  bike together in a month or two  ( old style decompression valve installed on a 2009 AVL). Inside head is a tiny hole for compression release

Thanks Matt.  Looks like nice work there; must have been a bear getting through those fins.  Also, thanks for the heads up on drilling the old style breather.  I've got an 06 that still has the lump on the side of the case.  Not sure if i trust my drilling technique however...

Hi Dan, I had a superfinishers  across from the deer valley airport do the decomp valve, glad I did.
   Your bike...if the drill gets twisted and you have to drill oversize...there's always helicoil!
      Hope it works out for you the first  time
         Best,   Matt
