just a little question, after washing my bike with simplegreenand water i started it up to dry off some and noticed air bubbles coming from the head nuts. i seem to think maybe water got down in there and while engine warmed up the water started to boil off, forming the bubbles. anybody else notice this. the bike is a 220 with about 6 hours on it not including breakin. any ideas thanx for the help , cyclers10

Have you checked the torque on the head bolts since it was broken in? After break-in, it is not unusual to find loose bolts on the engine, sometimes almost to the point of only being finger tight. You should always go over the entire bike after break-in.
