  1. They have a large clip inside a groove at the top part of the fork leg to separate the stantion.

    What year are the forks? there is a nut inside at bottom on later you can weld a socket on a long T bar to loosen.

    Everyone has their ideas, 18 years never warped a head but this one is junk anyways so I had no concern on the strip. I have flowed, ported and run it at 4000-5500 every ride so no plodding LOL! Most peopple have no idea they are meant to rev not go put put which is cute but hard on these engines. They need stretching out, 100 000 on the head, 35 000 or so since last off premium unleaded only.

    Dude, it looks like you loosened the 4 main head nuts before you even started to undo the 2 small nuts by the pushrod tube.
    You can warp your head doing that, you should undo them first, and then only a small amount as you then undo the other 4 a small amount then back to the first 2 another small amount. If something needs torquing up, it needs torquing down the opposite way when you disasemble.
    How did your chamber stay so carbon free?, do you have clean burn fuel or something over there?

    This is after 25- 30 000 miles I'd say 2 years commuting 5/7 days a week. Not bad have decided to bore up to 60 over looking for piston and rings now. I was happy to see the head still sealed well after the revving it went through. All the riding vids here are on this head while on.
