So on Thursday I went out for a ride as advertised on here. From Earby I went towards skipton and then up through Kettlewell and Buckden and then up to Leyburn. Where I had lunch at the Manor Café. I then rode back to Hawes, and down to Ingleton where I stopped for some fuel and then up to Devils Bridge for an ice cream. The weather was great, and I was loving it.
However on my way home I noticed that my bike seemed to be getting noisier, so I pulled into Rusty Spoke at Barnoldswick to have a look at it. It sounded like the exhaust was blowing, but I couldn't find where from. The mechanic at RS came over and had a look, and it sounded to be near the top of the downsides. But at this point the fan had cut in, making it difficult to feel where it might be.
So another brew and waited for it to cool down. Started it back up and I could feel it blowing from the no2 cylinder downpipe, which is when I noticed a distinct gap between the pipe and the head block. Shit its blown a gasket out.
Yesterday morning I thought I better check that I could remove all the exhaust retaining nuts without snapping any of the studs. But fortunately apart from one that needed a bit WD40 and a bit of gentle persuasion. It all came apart without issue, however out of the 4 gaskets one had gone completely and 2 others were well on their way. I Immediately ordered a new set of gaskets, and some new nuts (as the old ones were a bit crudded up). And my parts have just arrived, more great service from Wemoto.com
So I now need to find the time to get it all back together again, although we have the inlaws coming over soon, so I'd better not start it yet.
