Woke up and started to read about blown head gaskets... went out and checked some things on the bike.
Coolant is beyond low... didnt check for a long time so i dont know how fast it went down.
Started the bike shortly, nothing special, little usual side stand type of smoke from the left pipe.
Took out spark plugs. All quite dark, but number 3 (rear right) was a bit wet) maybe gas?
Swapped around the plugs and let the bike warm up. Started to smoke out of right pipe again. Idles fine though. I dont think it smells anything special. Just normal exhaust fumes.
Turned off at operation temp.Took out plugs, and they all look the same. Dark, but all dry.
I think the bike was spitting some liquid from the right pipe a bit. Couldnt smell if it was oil, gas or coolant..
What to do? Can we ride it if we keep an eye on the coolant? It runs fine. Could it be carb problem? The idle was little high yesterday come to think of it. Closer to 1300 than usual 1000 rpm when hot.
Book train tickets?
