Wow
Bit of oil
Just maybe valve guide seals ?

Hopefully not a big issue.

All the best with it

Did you spray lubricant on the bolts before taking them off? Could have seeped into the port. What does the other head look like?

Otherwise, if you haven't noticed excessive oil consumption already, leave it be.

Yes I did spray plenty of WD around before dismantling but that stuff in the port doesn't look too good. Other head looks beautiful.

15000 K's. I think it was the WD like Ryfly said, wasn't blowing smoke and the short piece of header was grey inside so I'll put it back together and see how it goes.

The stock exhaust is a horrible fit mine is leaking exhaust gases only springs holding it together.

You can see the leakage on that gasket that let the WD inside.

Nothing to see here folks

New gasket and a flat file on the exhaust flange to clean it up and you should be ready to rock

The problem is trusting the manufacturer, you really need to clean up these flanges before using these metal gaskets. I never trust anyone else's work.

Thanks guys, all cleaned up and fitted up now and the Rapid Bike just arrived by the postman so I'll fit that up as well today. Can't wait to see how it runs with the changes.

I only purchased it a couple of weeks ago 15000km and all services done but just unloved by the owner and a do-not-care dealer. Anyway it's getting some attention by a fan now so all will be good.
