Hello everyone, I am new here and looking for help. I just purchased a 99 Praire 400 4x4 from a backyard bike shop and he informed me it was in need of valve adjustment. He felt valves were held open causing weak compression. I did a little research prior to purchase and found this is a problem with these machines. However now that I own it, found low on antifreeze so added some and water is in cylinder now . Think someone ran it low and caused damage, not sure if common failure is just head gasket or worse? any advice would be great/ I would like to tear into upper half just wondering anything I should know before I start? Thanks James
PS I think I have this in correct forum now.
