  8. Also,the fuel,was pouring down the exhaust and washing the carbon down pipe 1, and dripping out the join it looked like oil, so that is why the expert bike shop said the head gasket was gone!!!!
  9. That was a bike a young lad I k9now had taken to a bike shop, they said the head gasket had gone!!!! he asked on fartbook and was told many times the head gasket had gone!! what had actually happened, was the bike shop who had cleaned the carbs, hadn’t tightened one of the pilot jets, it fell out and poured fuel down number 1 cylinder, lots of smoke, took an hour to fix properly
  10. dose it smoke like t,his?? This was a carb problem…..
  11. Find someone who can ultrasonically clean t hem, then replace all the o rings that have dried out whilst it was sat for 18 months.. there must be someone on here who can do it. happens all the time to bikes left standing..
  12. It’s carbs, get them out and clean them correctly,
