ANYWAY...UPDATE!!!......well I picked up the vstrom last friday....they replaced the entire rear clyinder head, valves etc...all of it...but there was a coolant leak...they figured they got it by tightening a hose clamp...so I shoved it in the trailer..I was runnign alte...I get home and offload it....bullshit...not right...it is spitting coolant out the left side...near the head...back it goes....yup...brand new head gasket was not seated right...so they are at it again to replace the gasket...

not bad for a month hey?....best thing is...all covered under the extended warranty that transferred with the bike from previous owner....not a penny out of pocket yet...excpet for time and gas...

nice to see them stand behind this Suzuki...BTW a Suzuki repa visited their place the day I dropped it off and thye were stunned that this has problems that they could not see...and were tearing it down based on my insistence something was wrong

the end story is the exhaust valve guide seemd to have been installed improperly at factory...a very very very rare strange event for this motor....

I am lookign to buy another Weestrom to add to this one...I do love them so...
bummer it wasn't done right the second time...glad you haven't had to pay for it...another Wee? My,My...
