1 detonation- great! on Sat May 14, 2011 11:11 pm

well got some bad news when I decided to tear down the warriors engine due to a bad cylinder gasket. when I took off the head I noticed that detonation had took place. it effected the piston and head. is there any way resurface or such to a head or just get a new one? with it tore all down I'm going to get a weber cam, hi comp piston bored over, hd valves and springs. it's go big or go home lol. atleast as much you can do to a warriors engine. I still haven't told the old lady yet. I'm a little hesitant since I just got the bike lol.

Are you asking if you can bore out the cylinder or actually plane the head? If it is too jacked up I would just get a different one, especially if you are going to put all those goodies up top. Get yours bored and honed and sell it on EBAY then buy a new one or one that is already set up to the specs you want.

Yeah if you are going to keep it you have a couple options, get it planed and fixed or have a performance shop work on it, expensive option but you know what you are starting with that way I guess

well I don't want to put alot of money into since it is a warrior and the resale value dose't get over 2,000$.

Hey Nick can you post some pics of the piston and head?

Also check out this link, its a whole page explaining detonation in engines, I know you know what it is but I thought it was interesting so I'd share.
