anyone know the standard-original distance from the bottom of the thread...or how many turns this steel nut must complete to lock the cap on the top?

Re: blue smoke from both the mufflers

Having done both I would say that pulling both heads is a piece of cake compared to swapping engines. did u replace the head gasket with a new one? This is a good question.depends on your pocket.On an 80000 km engine you can proceed in two ways: 1)Dismantle and refurbish both two heads:guides,seals...

Re: blue smoke from both the mufflers

easy fix check the spark plugs.... if I found oil on them ? Your question was about which head need to be serviced.if you found oil on both,both heads need to be serviced yes sorry I just found the front cylinder plug a little wet, the rear is perfect hope is a valve seal or guide...if not I'm womb...

Re: blue smoke from both the mufflers

how is possible to have both cyl rings and bores worn? the bike run well In my opinion I have got more likely a valve problem, the smoke appear for a while on acc and then disappear now the problem is which head need to be serviced... :?: easy fix check the spark plugs.... if I found oil on them ?
