    stuck valve..saito 60 twin

    I tried running a saito 60 twin and discovered it has a stuck valve. Any ideas on how to free it up? Not sure about dissassembly. The rockers are held on with e clips. Can I just unbolt the affected cylinder without screwing things up? Thanks.

    Yes you can pull just one cylinder but before you do, make sure the rocker is not stuck rather than the valve. You may not need to pull the cylinder. If it is indeed the valve you might get it freed up by giving it a shot of penetrating oil and excercising it a few times, that might also save a tear down. Make sure the pushrods are seated properly under the rockers too and not holding a valve open.

    Thanks. Trying that with penetrating oil now.
