Jeff said he could mig weld it with his wire feed. I just have to get a refill of argon because he's out. He used a lot on my case and swing arm mod. It's the least I could do being he isn't charging me. Just checked and it's $89 for an exchange and they don't have one until next week, maybe. All I would have to do is shapet it after he lays a bead in the damaged part. After looking at those junk heads for sale on eBay mine's not so bad. Cleaning it up now.
I am just wondering here....the gasket face looks OK. The dents are in the dome portion for the most part. I suspect there would be some interference with detonation but how much? It may be fine to use as is. Never done it...Just wondering....
I have a couple of Z1B's restored, an '80 KZ1000LTD restored, a 1981 KZ550 restored and a 2008 KLR 650 for off road fun. My wife has a 2019 Suzuki DR 650 for on and off road.
I'm tempted to just run it and rebuild the head that's on the bike now. I'm going to sand blast the combustion chambers with the valves in it and see how it looks then. It might be my barrels on the bike and on the bench may be too far gone. In that case I'll use the best of what I have and RIDE THE PISS OUT OF IT until I can go 1075 and send the other head in for the works.
That's what I wanted anyway.
Your welcome. After seeing your level of frustration with the light in the video you posted "looking for the cross hatch" on October 14th, I had to pay it forward because you helped me with the tach back half, you saved me more than I spent on the desk lamp... It was kinda meant tongue in cheek as a joke. but I'm clad your using it...
