Sweet. I was just wandering if it would damage the valve guides or anything else. I know it may be a stupid question, but i just wanted to be sure

Sure, just blow it alll out with compressed air after your done and make sure you put oil on everything when ready to reassemble. Fill all oil passages with oil too.

Don't wash it in the sink unless it is fully disassembled. You don't want to get water trapped in the valve guides.

How dare you use your sink as a motorcycle workshop......

Sorry, I just felt like someone should represent your future wife in this issue. I.E. dont for one minute think the rest of us get by with this.

Thanks for the laugh. This thread was a great read tonight. Even

the wife thought it was funny. I guess we could relate. Lets just

say I have been in trouble more than once for this type action.

One of which was just yesterday......:busted:

The last time I got in trouble with the wife (now ex wife going on 15 years) was putting parts for a 1967 firebird in the oven to harden the paint. And no thats not what caused the divorce. :busted:
