Thanks for the info. You painted a picture like Sherlock Holmes. ........step by step illustrating what could of happened. Honestly I never thought about a stuck valve opened for prolonged times but it makes perfect sense. I already ordered the valves and think I might just leave it at that. I want to get this done as I got an HT-1 sitting around apart I want to see improvement on.You live in a fairly warm dry area, so it's a little odd. When storing anything with a single cylinder engine, it's good practice to turn the engine over until you feel compression and let it sit that way…. both vales in the closed position.
Your in my old neck of the woods. My nephew drives for Swift. I always wanted to drive truck ever since I first saw Smokey and the Bandit as a child. Maybe one day. But by then nobody would want an old fat trucker.Sitting in a Truck stop in Ontario CA reading the Enfield forums. Thinking with nearly every post "this guy would get ripped to shreds in minutes on CR and never come back"...

sounds as if this bike is giving you some difficult times. When everything's working properly do you like the bike?Damn thing knows I've ordered stuff to straighten her out. Neither pop or fart and the only bangs were the ones it's supposed to make...Damn thing screwed with me this morning though. Not used to a bike that won't fuel with the sidestand down. Couldn't figure out why it wouldn't pressurize the system on the center stand. Then I looked down...
