Thanks for all the help you guys have been giving me i appretiate it. However my bike is still being a whooore, just doesn't seem to wanna run right. I'm thinking of opening up the engine block and taking a look at the head gasket. Can i do this without taking the engine out of the bike's frame? It just doesn't sound right when it's idleing there's too much pinging and rattling, and it's not producing anywhere close to the power it's supposed to. Also the fork springs seem really mushy. Does anybody know what i'm going to need to replace on the forks, is it just the springs or the whole tube?... yeah as you can tell i have little idea where to begin and i'd appretiate all the help i can get, thanks again for all the help.
