Looks good from here.


Make sure you clean the debris from the cylinder wall cavity. You don't want that in you cooling system.


Also, you should pick up a can or two of non chlorinated brake cleaner and clean your engine. You not only will highlight your hard work and look great, it will also be clean so that you can trace any leaks that develop if things didn't go to plan.


Try to get your external engine parts as clean as you can.


As far as exhaust doughnuts go, they are copper and get crushed and squished into place. Most times it looks like it is part of the head. you will have to gently pry them out with a flat head screwdriver.


It would be difficult to run them bike without them and not notice that they were missing so they must be in there.


Make sure you put anti-seize compound on the exhaust studs so the next time the nuts will come off easier.

Horsepower is an illusory mathematical equation; Torque is REAL, and is the source of all good things in the world.

The problem is not the problem. The problem is your attitude about the problem. Do you understand?

On the camshaft seals, if the OD is metal they go in dry, if not a light coat of engine oil to the OD and bore.
The sealing lips must be lubricated, oil or grease.

Advise given here is free and comes with no warranty "Caveat emptor"

Cams must come out.

Did you find the shift shaft seal location?

First of all you need to remember there are 7 head bolts for each head.

More than one head has been cracked by forgetting about that tiny bolt

Also you don't want to over torque that tiny head bolt.

Have you screwed the head bolts back into the block to verify each bolt can be turned by hand beyond what is needed to clamp the heads on??????



If you are unsure where bolts of differing lengths are suppose to be placed then start with the short ones and it will become evident where the long ones go. Slide them in the head they should be even on the block side.


The clean up looks good so far.

Refer to your manual for the torque patterns on those head bolts. It is very important you get that right.
