I believe Blown head gasket
Haven't ridden bike for nearly a year because I have been gone. Now that the cool weather is upon us i Charged the battery and fired it up noticed it was hard to start and also i immediately Noticed Anti freeze being blown out the kickstand side pipe and anti freeze dripping out of the exhaust where it connects to the exhaust pipe. I am pretty sure its the Head Gasket.
I am going to replace and know about cleaning and truing heads and block.
Now that I am having to take it apart do you think its a good idea to do both sides No water in Oil at all. Haven't pulled plugs yet but I have scout school this week. so wont get to it for at least a week. I was looking at Randacks kit hard finding new bolts but is there a good arp stud anyone has used? Of course Ill change the belts but do you think I should do Springs and seats and anything else.It only ran Hot twice since I have owned it and I replaced water pump with OEM a few years ago with new hoses and tstat.I guess if I pull everything apart and get the crank to T1 everything should be good just realigning the marks back up on the can belt wheels is that true or should I be doing something different?
Never argue with an idiot. They will only bring you down to their level and beat you with experience every time.
