Re: Bent valves? VTR 1000 cylinder head rebuild service

Maybe should of said I was think of using a bendy metal hose not a rubber one for that reason but if it's to the air box at least I should be able to do it without taking the carbs off again to replace it at a later date if need be. Not going to ride it for a while as no time at the min but eager to at least get it fired up and see where I am while I have a day free.

This thread has been so hijacked I'm out.
No more head rebuilds.

Finally running but not well! Think its the carb at fault. Rear cylinder seems to work ok and after running is quite cool to the touch. but front is white smoking lumpy and warm to the touch after running. cant rev it can only just run. Any ideas? ps I hate carbs. Sorry vid not great but better than nothing! Little puff of white smoke out of the carb too at the end. spent ages checking the timing but worried it may be a fraction out!
