ok this is my head I had you guys help me with getting off, the bloody dowels were pretty fused so I still had to get medieval on it. As you can see in the pics the skirt did in fact shatter and is all down in the bottom end... But what really worries me is the crack in the head, the flange that extends down into the case is almost broken off (the exhaust side one). The cylinder itself is not scored and everything else looks good. http://i974.photobucket.com/albums/ae228/TomRiddolls/DSC_0223.jpg http://i974.photobucket.com/albums/ae228/TomRiddolls/DSC_0226.jpg http://i974.photobucket.com/albums/ae228/TomRiddolls/DSC_0225.jpg So much of the bike is in very good, low hours condition. I'm just looking for a weekend rider - do I part this out and cut my losses or look around for a new head, or what??
