Leaking Head Gsket after repair..
So I recently picked up a 2012 Street triple R with a busted bottom end, as I had a spare 2011 Daytona R engine with a busted top end in the shed. Simple swap right?! Easy right!
So anyways, bought all the required parts. New gasket, bolts, washers blah blah. Followed the instructions to a T.
Put it in, and boy did it run great. Loved life for all of 2 weeks before I found the engine leaked oil from the gasket line when It really heats up. Coolant and oil are both milky.
Now. Is it worth opening it up and re-torquing to see if that fixes it? I made sure to wipe off excess oil on the engine bolts, but is it possible they slipped out of torque? I did find my rocker cover had loosened significantly as well (initially thought that was the source of the oil).... Or is it likely my two engines were just never meant to be one? Open to any suggestions. Would love to not buy a whole new engine, but most of all just would love to be riding it again...
