Unhappy k1600gtl problems

Well they replaced the ignition coil on #5 cylinder,also all the switches on the handle bars again ,makes like third time in 4700 miles,
I think I have either a broken valve spring or one of my valve seat has come loose holding valve open,Its definately sucking air on the right exhaust muffler.
has anyone had cylinder head problems like this yet,my bikes back at dealer probally for another week or more.

Re: k1600gtl problems

Still under warranty?
A small carbon deposit may also be the culprit if one of your vales is not shutting close all the way. This will eventually result in a burnt valve as the head of the valve does not make contact with the seat and does not cool off as it should.
