Stopped at Turtles Tacos before the bike quit, so all was not bad.

Always good to know someone with a truck.

This time it was the RD400. Not sure what's wrong, it's blowing massive amounts of smoke out the right chamber. Seriously looks like a fog machine. But it's a 2-stroke, so whatever's wrong is an easy fix, just have to find it. Big thanks to my friend Keith for driving out to the sticks to give me a lift.

FZR600 Head

I got the cylinder head back from the machinist. Took 6 thou off and it looks great. On one of the cylinders it looks like something tagged the side of the chamber? There's a slight dent which I'm sure won't affect anything. Maybe whatever happened to this head in its past life caused it to be out of spec and my leaking issue. I got the new valve seals in as well. Proper Yamaha ones with a steel jacket and viton rubber. Lets get this done.

The Saga Continues

Pulled the motor out, and the head and cylinders off....again. I'm going to take the head to get decked this week to make sure it isn't warped in any way. I don't feel like doing this again.
