Re: cylinder head gasket leak fuga por la junta de culata

what abouth the four studs ?
are you sure the thread is long enough for the nuts ? ( deep enough )
and : do you use four strong washers ( at least 4mm thickness ) under the nuts to press the head to the barrel ?

was not happy with the black master cylinder for the rear brake. ( horizontal fit, could not get the air out on it )
so I mod the footpeg for a Brembo vertical one.
