The cylinder head is one of the many important parts of a BMW motorcycle engine. It's essentially a housing, usually made of cast-iron or aluminum and located atop the engine block. It contains other critical engine parts -- the intake and exhaust valves, the valve cover, the springs, and the lifters, to name a few. Perhaps most importantly, it's where you can find the combustion chamber.
What cylinder heads do is pull air and fuel in via ports or tracts, expel exhaust gases, and help keep engines cooler by directing coolant into their blocks. They also help prevent water or oil from leaking into the combustion chambers using head gaskets. Unfortunately, no cylinder head lasts forever -- one can go bad owing to several causes, but there are signs you can look for before that happens. They include:
- Oil leaks
- Leaking coolant
- Engine misfires and overheats
- Other engine performance problems
See any such symptoms, and you should do a thorough inspection of your engine, followed by a cylinder head replacement if necessary -- that is, if not a complete engine rebuild, depending on the results. Our auto parts store has what you need -- the genuine article. OEM cylinder heads are made by BMW to be compatible with your bike from the get-go, after all -- a promise that the aftermarket can't always make.
