Gotta tip my valves so I checked out the other head. Looks like I can tip them and do it all at one time. B)

It's been 6 months. Was hoping to get more time but no way Jose. Time to pull the head off. I have that one piece Z1 head gasket and the one that's on it now so I will have my choice without having to buy a new one. Should be able to install my HD studs and maybe cure the base gasket leak. Maybe.

I'm putting this here. I 'tipped" the valves .008" as can be seen in my Bossie the Kaw thread. Here I'm bench adjusting the valves. I wound up relapping all the intake valves as well.

Tried the timing a different way but decided to go with what I know. BIG difference after the APE studs. More to come in Bike Cam. B)
