Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. Piston rings worn past service specs.
2. Broken piston rings.
3. Piston pin retaining clip failure.
4. Cracked piston.
5. Broken piston ring lands.
6. Hole in the piston.
7. Valve/guide clearance worn past service specs.
8. Worn out valve seals.
9. Crushed or loose valve seal.
10. Gouges in cylinder walls.
11. Cracked cylinder or head.
12. Blown head gasket.

Have you had an oil gauge on the line to check what pressure you are running at? You may want to try running a heavier oil in the engine. If you are running a synthetic oil switch back to ester oil. If this does not remedy the problem then a new oil pump will be the fix

how do you adjust the headlight beam on a xjr1300 naked 2002 bike, is it as simple as undoing the 2 bracket bolts at the sides of the lights and re-setting the lights to a new level ??
currently it seems to be set for riding with a pillion passanger or heavy load at the rear as the lights are set low, no one flashes me even if i ride at night with full beam on !
thanks xjr cambs

Possibly has air in the coolant system causing the coolant to boil. You can flush the whole thing if your coolant is in need, but mainly open the radiator cap and shake all hoses to release air while adding more coolant. Also may be the radiator cap spring (maybe). I am not sure about why it will not start up... maybe a sensor will not allow it.
* I am not certified in anyway and have minimal knowledge, my 05 r6 had air in the coolant and would boil out of the overflow. Make sure you use distilled water to avoid corrosion.
