hehe i can official pronounce it, it is fixed ! i think that is all i need done for a RWC. Two weeks ago, I gave Drew from Rolling MC a call, yesterday he came and put new gasket on... AND fitted new mirrors whilst he was taking the head off, he .. noticed my tappet nut was missing.. he goes diving in to the top end with a screw driver and finally pulls what use to be a tappet nut.. it was munched up a little bit... but we got half of it out. We go to a few places but none has the nut in stock..... he puts my engine back together .. and tells me to order in a tappet nut . i went to advantage motorcycles and ordered the tappet nut(yesterday.) arrived today... fitted it... now the engine is not as loud as the exhaust THANK GOD!!! THANK YOU. I ran the engine for 30 minutes, no sign of leakages even with 2 stripped bolts, mind you, the old gasket was NACKERED, it had seen better days. Before I cranked it over.. i was shitting dacks cause i thought i might've forgot somthing or something just doesn't want me running the bike!! not 5 minutes after it was running, i smelt and seen smoke coming from the bottom of the engine... but it clicked to me that it was probably the spray drew put on when he fitted the new gasket where he cleaned the engine up a bit... and probably just a bit of over spay.. I was thinking about kissing the bike engine, but 30 minutes of running would mean i have no lips left. I will kiss it before i go to bed I just need to change the oil (bit dirty...) 1 step closer to being on the road, yeeeehaaaaa thanks for reading my extremely exciting story, thanks, nathan.
