im in the process of buying a doohickey replacemente kit, so far i know, it does work at up to 50 k miles, and the clock says the bike has just 19k, so i guess i still have some time.
Anyways since i bought it 10 months ago i just put 3k miles on the clock, its about 300 per month.
My mechanic took the cylinder heads to the machining shop, they told him that they could repair it, they measure the piston, and disassembled the valves, and said that my valves needed to be replaced but that they could still use the same piston and rings because they are pretty much new( i guess thats what the previous owner did to the bike).
So, they will put a new sleeve in the cylinder that fits the piston( this one will be fabricated by them) install new valves, and fit everything in.
They are asking me 200 $, plus my mechanics paid. I can estimate it will be something close to the 300$ ( by the way, we do have really low fees when talking about mechanical services)
Id like to know what do you guys think about it
