I'm not a mechanic but I know a thing or two about bikes.
This sounds like a classic case of F'd in the A to me.














Sorry bro! I drank a lot of redbull and feeling a little jitterish!

how did this happen on a newer bike? only 3 years old.
do you leave it outside?
low oil? anti freeze levels?

It's not a head gasket. You probably left water wetter+ water in the bike. There a freeze plugs in your head that popped out. You need to put them back in a flush out your radiator and engine.

It is outside, I had water/waterwetter in it for the track last season, about 2 months ago I pulled my hoses and drained the water and then let it sit till today. Today I put the hoses back on, filled the radiator with antifreeze, burped it and made sure it was full. Checked the oil(did not change) and washed the thing. Then a couple of my buddies showed up and we went for a ride. I may have made it 5 miles before the bike started to pop and miss. I looked at the T-stat and it was reading 240 and climbing. I pulled over and let it cool down a little. Pulled the radiator cap and there was nothing. Then limped it back to the gas station(watching the temp, it never got above 220 on the way back) When I got back to the store, all they had was water, so I put 2 1/2 gallons of water in the radiator before it was topped off again. I just wanted to get the bike home. Started it up, it ran for about 10 - 15 seconds before it started to die out. Sounded like it was out of gas. Tried to start it again and it just turned over, then sounded like it locked. I then pulled the radiator cap, and the shit was milky, had shit floating in it. I then stood the bike upright and checked the viewing window(oil) and it appeared milky white. The fluid that ran out of the radiator cap had oil in it as well. I parked it at 7-11, and rode bitch home. Now I am sitting hear pissed off at myself that I killed my bike, but also looking at the bright side. You live and learn. Once it gets fixed(or I get a new bike) it will be living in the kitchen and I will be taking repair classes. I have never been to mechanical, this is all new to me, as I have never swapped out for water untill this last season.

First plan of action is to drain ALL fluids out of bike.

it's not hard to drop a motor. Once it's out - you can do whatever you want as long as you have the manual and good tools including a torque wrench. Don't even need a front/rear stand and you don't even have to remove the front tire.

Not sure if your bike has it, but that "special suzuki socket tool" that is needed to take off the rider's right side lower engine mount bolt, can be made using a dremel and a size 22 deep well socket. I have one. Worked great.

I dropped my engine in 2 days, and I'ma total FNG noob lol. Had it fully broken down by the 3rd day. I can help if need be.

and if you put brand new oil in it, and fill it with coolant after flushing the system, try pressure testing the cooling system before getting the bike too hot again. If it loses pressure after the thermostat is open and the pressure tester seal is tight (i.e. you aren't losing pressure at the seal), you have a leaking head gasket.

remove all fluids, remove engine, replace gasket, thoroughly inspect engine for signs of coolant damage/wear on the bearings and seals(remove pan and check head), re-assemble.

Good winter project.

I was told that if the plugs popped out that when I replaced the coolant it would have just run right out. Is this correct? the coolant stayed in the engine. I have no leakage.

BTW, thanks for all the advice so far. Def a winter project.

Agreed....

.....but if it does come to it, look on ebay, craigslist, gsxr forums, etc to find an engine, buy it (make sure it has some kind of paperwork and it has all the numbers on it, some people get freaked out if you try to resell if without paperwork or numbers), buy the mechanics repair manual (the real one), and disconnect the plugs on the harness, drop the engine, put in the new engine, reconnect all the plugs, fill with fluids, and enjoy!!!
