If it was my bike i'd replace the piston.


What do the valves look like when looking through the inlet and exhaust ?....Has the bike been smoking or burning oil ?

Sorry bad wording .....Look into the cylinder head where the exhaust connects and you'll see the valve stems .....They shouldn't be covered in black gunk.

Dunno whats the difference? just left it in Niknaks capable hands. Bet you have hands like leather. Any idea whats causing the backfire/gargling noise when backing off throttle? Anything else i should do whilst the top ends off? As you can tell its my first bike, but loving the Orange.
