The End        

I've been having problems getting the bike to start for awhile. So post BMRx maintenance (mostly just cleaning the bike up), I decided to check the valve clearances. #1 exhaust valve ... zero clearance. I've run the adjuster to the bottom of the threads and can get a bit of clearance but not 0.013mm for the base setting. The facts are the facts, after 108,000 miles the head is done.

Good thing i have a spare, i'll just need to find time to swap them out.

Anyone know of somewhere that rebuilds heads with steel seats?
