I have a 95 bullet 500cc. I recently did a valve job. I torqued the head to the specs, and can not get a good seal, it's leaking oil around the seal. Anyone have any ideas?
anyone have a step by step guide to lapping?

[Here's a snippet from one thread:Annealing head gaskets Posted By GeorgeE On 2007-06-05 At 15:58:56 Posted By DaveT On 2007-06-05 At 20:11:53 I always thought that you had to quench the gasket in water to get the proper effect. A quick search and and I found this from the Proceedings of The Royal Society Volume 80 No. 535 December 9th 1907"It is common knowledge that hard copper becomes perfectly annealed by heating to 500 C; that the heating need not be for any lengthened period, and the rate of cooling afterwards is unimportant."
