Has my headgasket gone?
Posted October 04, 2008 - 02:56 AM
Today ive noticed cream coming out of a pipe which i think is some kind of breather pipe down the left hand side of the bike,my first assumption is the headgasket has gone.
Im not losing any coolant but i know it doesnt always mix with oil when the head gasket fails.
Does anyone else think it will the headgasket thats gone or something else?

Ive checked the oil in th dipstick and its totally fine no cream so i take it everythings ok!
I was worried for a minute it'd be just my luck to buy a bike with head gasked failure!

Though ive just changed the oil and am worried about metal filings on the oil filter!!
Theres filings on the filter and what you could practically call wire wool on the gauze at the bottom of the frame
Not a propper large amount on the filter or gauze but im still worried!
Does anyone know if it could have done damage to the piston etc or will the filter and gauze have stopped it going any further?
