Replaced the o ring for the primary chain cover...This time I put a bit more Black RTV to see if that stops the small type f leak that I was seeing all last summer..Not as bad as I thought as almost a quart spilled out the bottom when I cracked it apart...Battery on the charger and waiting  a day or two to let the RTV cure..Hope to be up and running by the weekend..
Oh Magoo you done it again

Yesterday, I removed the front wheel/tire from my 2013 C5 due to an air leak. Today, I took it to a local m/c shop and had them replace the innertube -- will re-install tomorrow.

(Reminder: I need to purchase my own set of tire irons so I'm ready next time.)

I have 2 scooters, an '09 Genuine Stella 2 stroke, and a 2012 Yamaha Zuma 125. The Zuma will keep up with the Enfield up to about 60.
I used my Stella as partial payment for the RE. I still have my Yamaha Morphous.
+1 on the Vice Grips suggestion. I used one for a shift lever to get home (decades ago).

+1    Most every motorcycle parts store carries an assortment of Motion Pro tire irons between $15-$50.  I have a cheaper small pair of irons that take a little bit of effort but always get the job done.

I decided to install a battery tender type SAE pigtail. Simple, right? So when I was done I got the MIL engine light! How?WHAT? GRRRrr. Removed said plug, still had the light. Get on here and use the search function. I found Kevin's response to my question from 2010. Probably a loose wire. Go back out and wiggle all the plugs I can find. Problem solved!

You may want to ground out the single unconnected wire that is located near the computer.
There is another unconnected wire bundle with several wires connected to a multi connector.  It is not the one to ground out.  The right one only has one wire with a single wire connector.

After grounding it, turn on the key.  The MIL should flash out a series of short and long flashes.
These will tell you which sensor is giving the fault reading.  That should make finding a loose wire or bad connection easier.

This is the Royal Enfield MIL blink codes

Did some scary dodging and hazard avoidance in heavy traffic today...
Heavy 3 lane start stop with speed in between is scary enough for a new rider, until I noticed rainbows in the center of the lane, big..slicky randon blops, and no chance to merge and the other lanes and it was drizzling, this lasted for 5 miles, I think a car ahead was dropping it. Time to try less traffic filled routes!
Honestly shook me up a little avoiding the oil plus crazy cagers.

On the plus side, guys at trade school like bike ;)

Oh you hearty souls who change their own tires. When I was younger & stronger I changed tires myself frequently on my scores of bikes (there was always a source of decent used tires). I had several tire irons 20" long to get the leverage needed to get most of the tires off, after setting the wheel on 2, 4x4" timbers & jumping up & down on it to break the bead. I never had any success using the 7" short toolkit tire levers.
  Now I'm not up to doing this anymore, & am content taking wheel, tube, rim tape, & my collection of spoke weights, to a good shop & paying for it to be done right & balanced. That way if THEY pinch the tube its their problem. MORAL: Every one should learn "hands - on" why they charge $30. to change a tube type motorcycle tire. But get some long tire irons, & 4x4's to set the wheel on.
Best Wishes, Craig McClure

+1.  I'll rebuild my own engine, chase down any electrical gremlin, but I will not change tires any more.

Rode in to work today.  Good idea to put the tinted shield on, not such a good idea to grab the mesh jacket.  It was colder than it looked ;)  The fuel light was coming on and off the whole way, and I just got gas recently.  I guess sensor number two is on its way out.  I think I have a spare but it's also time to put a Sharpie in the tool box.

Thanks for the list. I found it in my search but the fact that I had been just tinkering lead me to believe I had knocked something loose. If I get another code I'll use the chart but for now everything is fine.

  I'm thinking is was that black ground wire for the ECU, that attaches to the ground strap at the battery .  Might be a bit loose in the connector?

Checked all the bolts I could find, did a chain tightening and lube, which isn't as easy as it looks in this vid from singh5g. Stupid snail on the right side was a real pain to adjust.

The fuel light was coming on and off the whole way, and I just got gas recently.  I guess sensor number

Or maybe I was just low on gas  :-[
