    The problem I've experienced with them is the bearings eventually becoming a loose fit in their bore, both the pulley double-row bearing and the hub bearing not locked in with the large internal nut.

    You may need to disconnect the park brake mechanism and lever from the caliper to allow the piston/spindle to return fully.

    Good you were able to retrieve the tensioner Lively. I would reuse the piston now having seen it cleaned up. The contact between it and the valve would not have caused any further damage lower down...

    To be precise, the starter motor is the biggest consumer of electrical power, DPS second. A battery related cause as suggested.

    Is the scarred valve bucket the one with the bent valve? Curious. Valve clearance check & adjust is done with shims, just so you know - if you haven't encountered such previously.

    Good work Larry. Did you find the cause of the stuck valve? Bit hard to pin-point the cause from pix. A couple of the cam/valve buckets look to marked/damaged by the lobe so replace them. How do...

    Does the stuck valve appear to be stuck open/down? ie is there lots of valve clearance? If so, the head must come off to investigate, but it won't be pretty.

    Indeed. :agree: It's a good thing to recognise one's limitations before one actually discovers them the hard way. Being confident and/or cautious is not the same as being capable.

    A 1 7/8" ball is not ok if hitch is 50mm. There's a very high chance it will detach when traversing lumps & bumps in the road. I wouldn't like a 500kg trailer (and that's probly illegal too)...

    No advice C but it's such a pity that Spyder doesn't inspire you with confidence. Most folks seems to have uneventful rides and here's to hoping you do too. :cheers: Ride safe.

    If the bike is overheating and coolant is flowing from the overflow as you say, there's a deeper problem that needs to be identified and rectified. Do you get an overheating warning on the display?
