Should I sell as is, or part out?
I've been extracting so much useful info from this site since buying an 86 750 from a guy a few years ago. Thank-you so much.
Since the purchase, I've spent well over a thousand bucks on parts and repairs (buddy of mine is a pretty good bike mechanic and gives me a great rate). Been riding the last couple of months and been having trouble with the bike not charging once hot, especially in town and at idle at intersections. Now, there seems to be something clogging up the carbs too.
Long story short, I'm done. I've replaced the stator with a TPE one (that process took a couple of months - Tim doesn't respond much to emails or phone messages), relocated (and purchased a new OEM) the R/R, bought Yuasa battery, installed voltmeter, etc. Now with this carb issue and hot weather charging issue , I don't feel like I can take the bike anywhere but back and forth to work, refused ride invites because my bike will die, and they'll be left helping my sorry ass.
I don't want to sell this bike as is, because it has unresolved issues, and as such won't get much for it. I also just paid $200 this spring to get the seat re-upholstered. Do you guys think it'd be worth parting the bike out? Or cut my losses and almost give it away to some poor sap with more time on his/her hands to spend hours searching the forums on this site to fix it?
