So riding home from a bcsb posted ride the other day my motor decided it just could not take it anymore and called it quits.
I limped into a service station and in a stunned state of shock called for a ride and a pick up for my bike.
I had my mechanic have a brief look at it and do a compression test.
The results were not good ,two cylinders seem ok and two have no compression at all.
The bike will still run on two cylinders sorta (not sure what to make of that?)
I know this is gonna cost me large but I am looking at options
Option 1 rebuild $$$$$
Option 2 buy a used motor $$$$ but cant find one.
Option 3 sell the bike for parts.
I did find one motor locally but its a 2005 and has totally different electronics package and I could rebuilt the one I have for only a few $$ more
I am gonna have the motor pulled and opened to see how bad it is next week
I have all kinds of ideas what might have happened but wont know for sure until then
Any way I figured I would post up about my situation in hope that somebody has a suggestion or option I have not considered or better yet knows where I can find an engine.
