Milky Oil. Changed it. Seized.

never heard of condensation like that happening to oil and making it change colors like that. i would have thought that it would have been something to do with your cooling system micing in with your oil. thats usually the key sign. you got lucky that they decided to cover it to otherwise thatd be a big f-in bill for you

The mystery parts are as follows...

The phillips head screws are likely the ones that hold on the black triangular piece that covers the airbox on the right side. The spacer goes to the collar that holds the airbox boot to the intake side of the carb. The bracket with the two fingers goes between the subframe strut and the exhaust midpipe on the right side. The hex bolt may be a seat bolt, a subframe bolt or an exhaust bolt. I believe it's a 10mm, possibly a 12mm, which are used all over the bike...SC

That's quite impressive... and thank you very much. :thumbsup:

EDIT: The hex bolt connects the starter lead to the relay.

Wow, I guess those 2 screws play a role in keeping water/dust/debris out... :thumbsup:

Well, 3.5 weeks and $222.50 later, I've got my bike back. :thumbsup:

New Cylinder Head, piston and rings.

Now, do I break the rings in like a maniac or follow standard procedure? I'm leaning towards the maniac side since I doubt I can handle 10 hours of putting around after a 3 week layoff...:thumbsup:

Standard procedure is to ride like a maniac :thumbsup:

It'll bed them in better if you load it. Just ride like you normally would and don't baby it imo
