ok wrenchers confirm my thoughts. 86 sei w/66000 new to me last fall not ridden much yet while checking it out found it needed a radiator cap replaced cap filled rad started bike and let idle..
upon heating up to temp (3 bars) some bubbles thru tube to tank bubbles continued as bike idled. upon cranking the throttle a few times large air bubbles to the tank. after cooling down fluid level did not drop in tank and low fluid in rad.
my thoughts bad head gasket. I'll pull the plugs to check them.
Not all bargains are bargains.
