Except for being able to tear down the motor yourself, you did all you could. Sh_t happens. Glad to hear you're back in business. :banghead:

Well have new problems...

after remove head
recondition head

reaseble

new coolant/head gasket and stem seals...cost 560 aussie dollars

now alot of white smoke on start up and bike running extremly hot..never run this hot b4.

checked rad on start up definant **bubbles in coolant.**..cyclinder head looks discoloured and alot of rattles appearing

Took bike back in they feel that the white smoke is from rings?? i thought it from water or coolant??

plus they r trying to tell me the heat is from fan not operating?? never a problem b4

i think they are trying to get more money out of me as i am a novice so i would appreciate any advice to counter there claims..cheers
