That's my first one. Kind of mediocre, but fun to write all the same :)

I just finished reading all of it. It's nice to see articles written by someone more familiar.

Out of curiosity, are you going to receive any compensation?

Not yet, I have to write for them for a while, prove myself that kinda shit. Obviously I would rather be getting paid, but I enjoy writing and most people can't put on their CV that they wrote for a website which receives millions of hits a month. So it's all good experience really.
Personally, i don't take a stance on whether or not there is a creating entity because i'm humble enough to realize, in my fucking insignificance, the concept escapes my comprehension with a lead of 9001 light years.

Yeah, man. Take the opportunity to get better at it and learn new shit. It can be the start of a career for all we know.

So I brought my motorbike to a local workshop to carb it, since it was having hiccups in the 3-4k range.

The mechanic called me yesterday.
"Hey man can you come over? it's too long to explain on the phone."
Oh shit.
Turns out that the camshaft has to be replaced along with the two rockers and the valves had just about 4 times the recommended tolerance, as cheap as 650 .

That sucks. My Suzuki was falling on it's face around 8k and it turned out to be weak valve springs. Rebuilt the top end myself, it's not hard and the only "specialized" tool you really need is a torque wrench and a feeler gauge. Checked valve clearance and it was fine, cleaned up the valves, fit them, had the cylinders hones, and put her back together. Ran like a new machine after that.

If the cam shaft needed to be replaced that sounds like the valves have been out of spec for a long time. Camshafts are about as much of a wear item as a piston is, so short of something going wrong it should last "forever". If you are replacing rockers as well, I'd just bite the bullet and replace all of the rockers.
What kind of bike is it? Is it even worth all the $$ and work it needs? What kind of bike even uses an internal cam anymore? Everything now-a-days is overhead cam...
All bike, all the time!

It's a 1999 SMS 610 and it has about 27k KMs. Problem is, it's been mine for about 2k KMs and i do not know how well it was treated by the previous 4 owners. The guy that sold me the bike told me that he'd check the valves' clearance along with the new timing chain but he definitely did not. Furthemore, a little sheet of metal on top of the head that was supposed to stop liquid oil to pour out the vent wasn't actually fixed to the head (a screw was missing) so god knows for how long it had been repeatedly hitting the rockers' rollers, surely not helping with the camshaft or the valves' clearance...
In the end tho i can't just sell this bike and buy another one, due to these problems... I would really love to do the owrk myself but i don't have room for the equipment; i barely have it for the bike itself.
