    i bought me new engine cause i got tired of working on old one!these engines are garbage!blew head gasket on first ride of my first builed and i know why cause i didnt tightened down head bolts with torque wrench! i go to autozone get me a t wrench but couldnt torque them because before i even got close to to the proper torque the bolts would keep spinning! so i tightened them snug as i could i got gas and i got spark and pedaled the hell out of it but it wouldnt turn over!does anyone know wtf the problem is?its a brand new engine!

    your head is still not torqued down

    get rid of acorn nuts or add flat washers under tham

    yeah, you need to replace the original garbage bolts/nuts/studs with good ones.
    they are just $10 from Sick Bike Parts
    then use sandpaper on glass to sand your head down to be perfectly flat because it comes warped from the factory.
    what a shame that you threw one engine away just to replace it with the same.
    If you want to throw money away then throw some my way
