Hi spaceman, I can see what you mean about the inlet valve looking as if it has a crack, however it is simply the angle of the photo. The other photos Iíve taken show the inlet valve does not have a crack.

After a top end overhaul, which included torqueing the head bolts several times, when cold and after running the bike to get it worm the bike now seems to be air tight at the cylinder head. It was pulling strongly up the hills where I live.

There are other issues Iíve been working on with the advice from people such as how to ensure the ignition lever has enough friction to stop where Iíve put it. Also getting it to idle just right, but these are all problems I will persevere with overtime.

Thank you for any ideas and advice you may have given.
