Dammit, I need halp!
« on: November 16, 2013, 04:03:38 PM »
I rode my 996 down a sharp ramp.  The exhaust dragged at the breakover point and now, coolant is dumping out of the over flow tube, like there's a hole low and air has to bubble up to let more coolant out.

I cannot find where the damage is, but I'm assuming that when the bike was on the exhaust, it cracked something.  Any ideas where?

btw, I'm really sad now. :(

They are a great ride.  :-\

I'm dumping out the 996 but I'm going to look for a replacement motor for the Multi.

Oh, and I'm getting a Triumph for my reliable daily ride

All joking aside, which Multi? I've got this 750 engine here.... If yours is a 620, I believe it to be a direct bolt in. If you are worried about fueling and what not, maybe just pull the parts you need from it? Other than bore and stroke, I believe they're identical.

DS1000.  I'm looking for a 1100.  Less valve guide problems.

You need a lower truck.

Dewey,

This was out of the horse trailer! I've ridden a ton of bikes out of it.  Couldn't believe anything would catch at that low of a pitch.  There are a few roads here where the grade is as steep, with railroad tracks at the top.  Glad I wasn't on one of those roads.  Can't imagine what would have happened at 30 or 40 (or 50 :redface:) mph.   :willy:
