Dumb luck

Anyone who tells you that removing the rocker cover from an early 80s GSX250 engine, is a damn liar. After an hour of ‘valve cover jujitsu’, as it has has been put before, I removed the valve cover and found the hole in behind the spark plug goes to nowhere. Nowhere! Like Suzuki knew some goober, at some point, would poke a hole in his cylinder head and it looks like I have been lucky in this.

So we are good now. After working some metal putty into the hole, following s good clean of the area, the best I could carry out with the access to such a tight area. The main problem with cleaning such an area was that the spark plug was in the way, and if I pulled it out, run the risk of pushing detritus into the cylinder itself.

We are good now though, utilising my Father’s Day putting the fuel tank back on with my little helpers, I have drained the fuel bowls after I have left the bike sitting for so long, and I am ready to fire up this machine that I love and hate in equal amounts.

Stay tuned, video soon to feature me starting the bike.

Or beating it with a big stick.
