I also had the head off after pulling the plug and it being coated in oil and I noticed oil leaking from the front of the head so I sanded the rest of the raised ring down so now I have the beneift of a larger clamping surface and higher compression.

I have had nohing but problems with this bike and am seriously considering selling it if anybody is intersted shoot me a pm.
Dont give up..... if you take the right steps you'll have the kink smoothed out before long and then you can get a lot of riding time in between any needed repairs or maint.

Best wishes....

I dont always ride WOT, but when I do..I do my best to keep the rubber side down..Ride safely my friends!
