Using an 18" Starrett rule, the head doesn't appear warped from being overheated.

I can't understand how the cylinder cooling passages got plugged solid with grimy grit like concrete while the rest of the motor remained comparatively pristine.

The front tire slings up all that crap that goes unnoticed.

ZN1100B shares the same J-model engine case, as I understand. 



BTW I replaced the original clutch push-rod O-RING, and have a few spares for cheap, if anybody needs one.

Pop it in those cases, it'll keep the dust off it
