Here's what I'd do. First I would closely compare how it runs with your bike since you both have the same bike. How it runs would seem to tell you the most. If there is any damage the head gasket is probably the first to go. I'm not sure but on cars its that way. Check for "off-colored" oil. I'd change the oil and catch it so you can inspect it. I'd check compression also which could indicate if the head gasket is damaged or if there are any valve or head problems to check further into. These are cheap things to check but hopefully someone who knows more will chime in. I'm kinda curious myself to see what others experiences have been.
