    i heard from a friend of mine that works on bikes that it sounds like a valve guide. guess we could do a leakdown eh?

    a leak down test will tell u if it is a valve guide, but which one? theres 16 of them, and I really dont want to get into replacing all of them, nor paying for 16. Im also stumped on the part on taking turns fast and the oil being burned.
