    killed my domie?

    yesterday i drove on het highway, 120-130km/h.
    when i came of my domie died at the trafficlights. i couldn't get het running again.
    when i opened the choke and tried it again the motor run but died under 4000 revs.
    trie pulling away above 4000 revs in the rain!...
    nice!
    when i got home i gave her ( and me) a little rest, later that day i tried again and filmed it

    what do you think? it smells like burning oil..

    ( by the way, sorry bout my language, i'm dutch...)

    That's okay, there's more of us here.

    Seems to run reasonably well at first glance, is that on the choke? Could be just a blocked slow jet, that would cause the nobody home below 3-4000 rpm effect.

    That smoke is worrisome though! Where does it come from? Leaky exhaust? Blown gasket somewhere?

    maybe a leaky exhaust valve guide seal on one side only ?

    Just looks like the head gasket to me - when you rev it it appears that smoke is coming out of the joint between head and barrel.
    That would result in low compression at low RPM.
    As to why the gasket has failed, not sure.
    Other than that it sounds like a good engine - got to be worth whipping the head off, for the sake of an hour's work you might be back on the road.

    It'll be a bit more than an hour, but yeah, if it's just a gasket...

    Wondering where you found that other engine. Not Roukama by any chance?

    Oh good, not my old one then.

    Yeah, gaskets are... dear. Have a look around Honda Motorcycle Parts, Kawasaki, Suzuki and Yamaha Motorcycle Parts - ATV, Classic Bike, Dirt Bike Parts, they have lots of stuff. Mind you prices are ex BTW.
