evenin all. basically mine engine is smoking a little( as in i m not losing sight behind me) under acceleration from 3-6 grand id say. clutch is noisy sounds like the bearings going to break down eventually. what i need to know is ive heard of the bores going out of round over time, without stripping it i would like some knowledge of if its the rings wearing ? valve stem seals? bore out of round? the clutch issue is easy solved, my slave cylinder has new seals, but is still weeping have to re sleeve it. had 98000 on clock ive taken it to 5000 ks oilchanges +filter at 0 000 and 4000 respectivly. loves the long distance , bit of a rattle from engine and my front brakes squeal like a bugger and shudder at low speed. just after info, the repairing i have no issues doing, also has to warm up for about 2-3 mins before ride, if not it idles at 250 rpm or so and turns it self off when you pull the clutch in. its fun.
