Stupid people say stupid things on the internet, so be wary of who those people are. If you solicit advice on the internet, just keep in mind 99% of what you'll receive is not based on fact or science-and likely atleast 95% of it is based on bullshit and bravado regurgitated from some other schlub who also did not experience any of what they claim and are also full of shit. If you don't like my bluntness- too bad. I am not here to please you, so move along, your approval is not desired nor is it needed. So before opening your pie hole and adding more stupidity, perhaps sit back, listen, absorb and learn something. You know that saying, it is better to remain silent and thought a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt!

Here for your brain teaser and entertainment pleasure

2005/6 ZX6R

symptom...........water in the oil--------oil in the water----------water in the exhaust

waterpump was obviously bad, had silicone and a screw shoved up the drain hole for when the seal fails (no doubt in an attempt to make it not leak on the ground)

replaced internals and cleaned up the pump.........
leakage test cooling system and still about 1 psi loss over 2 hours
Cylinder leakage test on the cylinders shows less than 5% on any of them but #3 cylinder has air blowing out the KLEEN dowel hole under the valve cover.... (was doing valve adjustment anyways)
-------obviously has compressed air pushing into that bypass hole in the exhaust port or through a crack in the head, but how/why

Engine out, head off and #3 cylinder piston is washed clean from all that water, headers drain out about a pint of coolant, combustion chamber of #3 also washed relatively clean

Check head for flatness and head gasket for evidence of water getting by.....both appear good and head is definitely flat even with the old gasket material still stuck to much of it.........nowhere would a .001" feeler get in anywhere or even try and the .0005" feeler only fit in the non gasket covered areas (I guess we can surmise the gasket material is about .0005" thick)

pull valves, put compressed air directly in that KLEEN passageway in #3 and hold a finger over where the dowel fits...........lots of pressure but some air is going into the cooling ports of the head, I can see it moving some of the residue water around

Yet I cannot see any crack or anything at this point.............

Time for more cleaning, but I surmise the head is toast and likely cracked between the water jacket and that KLEEN passage, but then why water in the cylinder?-backfeeding past the valve when open
And this also does not explain where oil in the water is coming from


Unless..........the waterpump was the first issue and them plugging that only made things worse.............and the head is a separate issue........

Good thing it is winter for a couple more months.............

But it seems at this point it is likely cheaper and easier to get a cylinder head and then disassemble the entire engine and .........new rings, new bearings and check everything else out closely...........who knows how long it ran with water contamination or what else is wrong with this 22,000 mile bike as a result of this or other neglect and stupidity

I apologize to all those who needed me over the past few months.

Been super busy with life's problems and haven't had any time for myself


Still just getting back to "normal" so bear with me...

Glad your back,, didn't hear from you or see you on the forum.

Had me a bit worried.

Hope things smooth out both at work and home.
More so at home since it's spring and would expect the shop to get real busy.

I am doing alright.busy as shit of course

The GF's dad passed away and her mom is trying to learn how to deal with life after being cared for the past 56 years....

No will
She never had to deal with any finances (completely in the dark)
And now she has this "freedom" to spend all willy nilly and she doesn't have that kind of money to do so

So teaching an old dog restraint from 2000 miles away is a pain in the ass.......... Drove 20,000+ miles in 11 weeks trying to get all these things sorted out...plus sent her daughter out without me to fix some things too-she flew
(but x2 people...her solo flight/car rental was $1100...when I drive it is ~$110 each way in fuel with 2 people in the car running 80-85 getting 41mpg trip average....so I prefer the 26 hour drive straight through, rather than the hour to the airport, hour plus waiting to get through security, another 30-60 minutes before the plane loads and departs the gate, 4+ hours flight time, an hour dicking with unloading and getting a car rental, then 2 hour drive......approx 9 hrs at $1100 vs 26hrs at $110.....easy math

She (her mom)feels;
you have credit cards, I should have them too
you bought this or that...I want that too
Joe Schmo has XYZ, so I need them too
She saw some $45 earrings she wanted....oh wait she has 250 pairs she has never worn, at home already, along with clothes that still have tags on them from years ago and yet the compulsion to buy more etc.....
She simply can not go anywhere without spend spend spend..she has some sort of compulsion disorder I am sure of it... no doubt stems from decades of doing without and now nobody can tell her NO anylonger, I can only suggest and advise and try to lay it out there for her to understand how quickly she is going to be penniless and then homeless

All this despite no life insurance payout to spoil yourself from, or any income at all........
At the rate she is going, 7 months she will be broke

New flooring and furniture aside......Cuz that was an 8k hit right away (granted those were actually needs not wants, since nothing has been done to the house since the 60's.....but those needs should have been done at 1/4th that cost IMO)

Anyways......so caring for elderly "parents" is so much fun when they don't know how and have never had to care for themselves..... Made more challenging by the distance

But enough about that.......

I have 4 race bike engines to get done in the next 5 weeks and only one is apart thus far........... Like spring isn't busy enough, I have to try and catch up on all my winter work I could not and did not get done

That New Jersey bike still sits complete (i bought it from someone on this forum)....... I need bits and pieces of it for 2 of the bikes
Just bought another zx6r head (also bought from this forum) for one of the other ones
but I do have about $3000 worth of brand new oem kawasaki parts sitting here to reassemble all these with
So atleast I should have everything I need (should be the key word)

I just did a tune up on an ST1300 with 35k on it........go to test ride it and the waterpump pukes...oh joy that was explaining to the customer
Got done with a CB919, think it was a 2002? 14 of the 16 valves were tight and throttle body sync was so far off I had to turn the adjusters more than 18 clicks each on all 3 of them--just for perspective, often it is only 2-5 clicks needed on 1 or 2 of them

Anyways......2013 gsxr750 came in........well see the picture attached
I have to think they used an impact gun to install the rear axle nut, plus the chain had almost zero free play and was crooked to boot

I always enjoy coming back to this thread. Glad to hear you're still around.

Good luck with both the bikes and family. At least it doesn't sound like you've been bored

Jesus...that axle nut. Hahaha I have a feeling they'll be back for many other things in the future if they can keep it rubber side down.

Was starting to wonder.... glad all is sort of okay.

"Basic stuff fellas. Use your head for something other than to break your next fall."

"There's this adage that we have 2 ears and one mouth so we should listen twice as much as we talk. Unfortunately with the Internet people have taken this old adage and turned it around. They have two eyes and 10 fingers so they think they need to post 5 times as much as they read. And since they have 10 fingers and one brain, they only have to think 10% of the time! "

This is going to hurt the wallet......

NO foriegn objects belong in the combustion chamber!!!

Fuel/air mix and nothing else

Then of course this frozen fuel cap latch....no amount of spray, heat, vibrating and general abuse was ever going to get it to let go and open.... In the end I threw it away and installed an entire new cap assembly

And who thinks ethanol is a good thing

What was it that got in there? It looks like he has a cracked piston, scored cylinder wall, and a crack in the cylinder wall?

At what point does he just need a new engine?

Ugh, that sucks bud. Chin up. About all that I can say is that even though it doesn't seem it now, you are fortunate that she is still with you. Both of my grandparents were in the same situation and when one passed away, the other one did withing 3 months. They literally couldn't figure out how to live without the person they had been with for 60+ years.

Sorry, late getting back to this thread. I assume that you received them and all is well =) And a big THANK YOU for the business!

Ouch, that looks ugly. And FUCK ETHANOL! I had to drill and tap a new hole in the frame of my Sprint ST for the front gas tank mount because the tank had swelled more than 3/4"! The really scary part is that this isn't uncommon!

Yes I received the levers thank you

Still waiting on a cylinder head from someone else on here that I bought from the same day.............ugh--cannot even get a response...asshole



ONly 3 hits on the engine... piston/head so I assume they heard the noise and shut it down real fast, but the damage was already done.

Piston has a dent all the way to first ring and the first ring is broken and the scoring is it coming by the piston and in the process cracking the cylinder...... yep it is part of the cases
I went to MO and retrieved a used engine for this.............what a total pain in the ass for a bike that should have been relatively simple.....

St1300 requires rear subframe removal, rear tank removal, and a whole slew more time consuming bullshit to get the engine out and another in.......unlike the inline 4 sportbikes I can do in about 3 -4 hours this one is about 20 hours............big pain in my ass
