Anyone in the Phoenix AZarea who can help me replace head gaskets on my '86 SEI? I have limited abilities and will compensate for your time.

I would be happy to help you out.. I am in Peoria, and only available on weekends.. I have only worked on 1100 so need the community to tell me if there is anything significantly different.

How are your tools? Do you have a book?

Why do you think the gaskets need replaced?

Bike overheats and bubbles into the overflow tank. I have been struggle with this for a year, probably doing the same wrong thing over and over. Since I have to be out of my house in two months, I have to fix it or give it away.

I suggest the night before you start you spray every bolt, nut etc with penetrant as the small bolts holding the injector pipes, 2 bolts per cylinder, may break, if they do you will need them redrilled and tapped. Sorry can't help any more - unless you want to fly me over from the uK.

Another tip, it may help getting the injector ultrasonically cleaned while thy are off - small cost but great benefit

It's gone. I don't feel that bad. I rode it 6 miles and the temp went to six bars. Nice guy in Gilbert took it. Now I can concentrate on other things.
