Is this bad enough to need to get it fixed?
I've posted this before, but no with the numbers.
I'm guessing head gasket (though no white stuff in the oil) or bad valve (a friend told me he could hear the cylinder struggling thru the exhaust note). Hopefully its just that. Maybe some rings?
The thing runs, but nothing like my first gixxer which was near new. There's some lags / flat spots in the revs in neutral. Also the thing idles funny. After I cold start it with no choke on it can stay running. But if I give it some choke, it'll quit. I have to rev and give it some choke at the same time for it to stay on and stay at the higher revs (choke on).
How much to replace a valve / head gasket?
Recommended getting a thinner one while I'm at it?
Bike is the 99 gsxr 600, 20k original engine and tranny
Was stolen and recovered possibly overreved (how much unknown). Bought it as a smokin deal from a buddy.
Any help is appreciated...
