Continued breaking down the cylinders today. The right looked pretty good, all in all, and everything came apart easily.
I was in good spirits when I started into the left cyclnder. That's when I came across this.
Pretty severe pitting at the head and cylinder where they meet. Doesn't look good. I started another thread to see if there is some kind of fix or if I'll need a new head and cylinder.
It was enough to take some wind out of my sails, and with the Indianapolis MotoGP starting in 15 minutes, I figured it was a good time for a break.
As always, any input is greatly appreciated!
