Once a mechanic, always a mechanic bro nice to hear from you again.
As a former stuntrider I was forced to learn how to fix my own bike, along the way I was forced to fix other peoples bikes and cars and trucks and boats.
After about a million hours logged into youtube learning from top mechanics I consider myself a "technician" halfway between a helper and a lead guy.
For a living, I actually work on Harley-Davidson, putting all the bad boys motos back on the road.
Last night, i took off the stator cover again and filed down the area in question and used what is now my favorite product;
Permatex RIGHT STUFF. Its not like normal gooey crappy permatex, It creates a seal in minutes that becomes like hard rubber. Ive used it on mnay things lately, with surprising results.
Its a little pricey, however it is worth it, I also used it to create a double seal to the fuel pump that I let sit overnight.
no leaks yet from the jbweld job, I can live with a drop or 2 anyway for now, if it leaks again I will try to nickel rod the area as I have never done this, but have been doing research and it looks like a great way to handle cracks/ breaks like the ones on this engine case.
more dumb pics
On a side note it wont lwt me remove the button for "do not use avatar" I think mine is stuck like that maybe a mod can unlock it?
as you can tell my IT skills are not as good as my carb rebuilding.
