Amen! I always preach do it yourself. Most people don't like to hear that, so I held back on this one.
yep.. thats my approach these days..
just before i put my R1 away last (picked up a chopper to change things up) i had some symptoms come up which alerted me
to 'something' being off. Sure enough as soon as we got into the head it was obvious service was needed, once i was in it
was a 5 second decision to have proper head-work done. In my case it wasn't anything serious at all, rather normal wear/tear.
It has been a great learning experience, same as with any upgrades i've done in the past. You nearly always find
there is no genie in the bottle, pure mechanics. Part a goes into part b, etc and so forth; toss the bent/broken pieces
if the area you live in gets actual winters, even better! no 'down-time'.
just think of it this way, if you can hear pieces rattling around while you 'rev' the engine..
this is not a good sign, there are probably pieces rattling around inside which should not be.
