Welcome Pud, know what you mean mate, I recently helped my 25 yo son to move house, part of which was clearing out his shed, he handed me a box of 'rubbish' which contained my electric drill (burnt out motor) 2 of my wood chisels (edges chipped and burred) and countless hand tools/sockets/spanners etc. which were rusted to fek because his shed leaked like a sieve and they had been sitting in 2-3inches of water in a plastic storage box. I didn't even know he'd borrowed half the kit!

It's funny but a local dealer has an XJ600 (unfaired Diversion), and I did wonder how it would lend itself
to being CR'd
Now I know.
Best of luck and keep us posted

right finally got some time to work on my bike left the sub frame till the weekend so started striping engine haven't bothered with any photos as IED has already covered removing a cylinder head and servicing it so unless any body wants a how to on a chain driven DOHC head take this as read good news is the top end is in great shape just needs a flamin good clean and replacing all the studs and seals as matter of course. cheers

Pud, Take a step back, Have a brew and a good nights kip. Leave it a few days and come back to it.

A break is as good as a rest. I have lost hand fulls of hair over my build.

These things dont happen over a weekend.

Hope you drag your project back out and continue.
