Re: 2007 GSXR 1000 engine removal?
Great information! They are working on their problem as they see fit? I'm doing the same, sort of? I'm not sure exactly what my bike is indicating to me as an oil burning problem. It could be either, valve guide seals, or valve guides themselves. Or it could be the oil wiper ring on the pistons. The compression numbers suggest compression isn't the problem? Shifting isn't a problem, and my last spirited ride didn't indicate other problems, other than the blue smoke while riding slow through small towns with lower speed zones? I started with Motul 7100 10/40 which may have been contributing to the problem but I changed to a 20/50 synthetic weight with no improvement? I have never opened a motor beyond valve check so this is all new to me. I'm not sure how much I'm prepared to spend in order to repair this motor or just throw it away and going in another direction?
