Lots of time was wasted on winter and being mad at the bike...lots a money spent and research and effort but for those who followed, every sensors and such are new, Termi ECU has been reflashed to last update etc etc.

I should be good to go for a couple years.

OK, went through the old fuel and currently on fresh stuff. Power back to normal (that engine has brand new rings after all) idles and run low rpms no stalling, no leaks no odd noises besides the ones I imagine in my head becoz 11 pages worth of resons.

Put-putted around town posing to get the temp high (pre fan trigger though) a few times and no problems. Temp goes back to 72c as soon as I get on the open road.

Looks to be cured, exorcism successful, devil compelled, saved a Tricolore from being parted out. (yay)

What did it you ask;

I think that check valve in the oil pump (its a mechanical check valve) got stuck somehow with debris and prevented oil from circulating since MBR put his durty hands on it.

I can do an autopsy of that oil pump and report if interests are shown...but I doubt...that sheet only happen to me apparently.

1 week of riding, top speed runs, cruise,heat cycles...everything seemed fine and dandy until....I hit a 103C stride, brought it down to 93C by speeding up, grabbed the clutch because something felt odd and it died.A CAA ride later, remove parts and...belt shredded. Possibly a bent valve.On the exhaust cam this time. No oil starvation problem so this is repaired but hell.

Things point out to (that is a theory here) slightly worn crank bearings that require (at the point they are) the perfect storm for the valve to make contact (thinning oil enough?) OR theory #2 bad head gasket (wrong thickness for whichever reason)

Bad: I threw out the old head without taking out the valves and shims and everything else :/

I was recently going through this similar issue on my recently purchased low mileage 1098s. Rough idle, would stall when engine was warmed up, exhaust was soooo hot my nuts would be roasted at the end of a ride, I also found it difficult to find the clutch point and it would always look and sound like I was still learning to get off the mark in 1st gear.
