Part out, junk, or fix?
Not sure what to do with my bike. It has 24k miles on it. Recently tore apart engine to replace head gasket and every other plastic or rubber part inside.
Had it running for a little bit, but have had constant problem with mechanical seal. Originally leaked AF, took it apart and replaced impeller (one side of seal) and the mechanical seal. Did not initially leak anything, then started leaking coolant, then added oil, now it smells as though gas is also coming out.
If I knew the issue, and it was reparable, I would do it. But it seems like there is no one good answer, so I consider parting it out, or junking/scrapping it.
All thoughts, suggestions, and ideas are welcome.
I was away from this board for a few years while I had my Meanie. Back in the day, there seemed to be a higher degree of technical help here than now.
