Default 2000 gsxr 750 dirty valve

ok after starting to tear the motor apart i looked into my valves first found out my number 1 valve is gummy and extremly dirty. thinking of running e85 fuel in it to clean it off. trying to figure out if that is a good idea or if there is a easier way to get it cleaned with pout ripping it apart and cleaning it

If you believe it to be the counterbalancer, you won't need to disassemble the top of the engine. It's all in the bottom-end that you're looking for.

IIRC, you said the bike ran okay, but had a bad vibration.

If you are digging into the CB, you don't need to mess with the combustion side for a bit.

Treat the tank with a good dose of SeaFoam when you get the bike back together, and go ride it.
