A lot of water coming out of the exhaust

Hi,
Thought I would share this it may help someone.
I have a Honda Ace VT750CD with a problem. There is a lot of coolant coming out of the exhaust. I confirmed its the rear cylinder by pulling the exhaust and seeing the coolant coming out of the rear port. There is no coolant at all in the oil. So I guessed it was the head gasket gone near the exhaust valve or worse the cylinder.
Before pulling out the engine to change the head gasket I decided to try a product I had heard about called Wynns Block. The procedure is to drain the coolant then mix the bottle of Wynns with fresh water and add to the bike radiator . Start bike run for 15 mins then flush out and add new coolant. Wallah it worked for me no water coming out if the rear cylinder exhaust port and I had a lot of water coming out.

While good information, I'm thinking this is just a band aid and you will be doing the gasket in the future anyhow.

Just like the stop-leak. Aluminum powder in a tube. The only diff is that you didn't have to drain the system to remove the excess. Like @smurfy71 said, nothing good last forever.
