Hello. I had new guides fitted and honed . The bike blows smoke and has an oily plug on the left hand side.Pretty sure the shop that did the job did not heat the head or drill out the old one. I was wondering if anyone had applied loctite blue or Stag , then pushed the guide back in.Or just clean it in situ and apply the same. 290 wicking Loctite?Cheers , Max.

Not going to work, you need the job done properly, with oversized guide, next time with another head that needs guide work get the guides relined as it's a lot safer.
