So I'm sick of not riding and decided I have to try and fix my bike.
Last year I sprung an oil leak. the hose on the right side leading to the top of the cylinders started to leak. I thought I fixed it, but i was wrong. I ran the bike low and it made a screeching noise. I shut it off and haven't turned it on since.
We're thinking that since there's metal on metal contact and no seizure, I might be able to get away with replacing the piston rings and sanding the cylinder walls with an emery cloth.
Has anyone had any luck with this type of failure before? If so, is there anything else I should look out for?
