im stumped guys! So here it goes... I have a 05 CBR600rr
background... im not really sure. got the bike in on a trade. it hasnt ran for years from what im told. electrical issue. ended up just being some bad relays.
got it running and it ran great. crisp throttle response smooth idle. rode it around for a day and seemed to do great. never got hot or missed a lick.
the next day i go out to fix a leak at the water pump lower hose. loose hose clamp seemed easy enough. tightened it and fixed that problem. ride it around the block everything was perfect.
i open the radiator cap and my worst fear... oil spots rising to the surface.
not much so it seems to have just happened.
soo i drain the oil and to my surprise i find no coolant in the oil.
i start doing hours of research and apparently on the older model 600's they had seals on the oil cooler that would go bad. on the 05 its a stand alone unit.
but now that i have coolant in the oil too i figured head gasket right??
well i pull it all apart (engine out, head off) and what do i find??
NOTHING!! no signed of bad head gasket? no cracks that I can see in the head or block....
am i missing something????
i really wanna ride this thing. its my first bike and funds are very limited.
i ordered a new head gasket.
should i just clean it really well and put new gasket on and see what happens?
could i have caught it early enough to where it would not have shown any signs of being bad??
thanks for the help guys!
