So I traded my quad for a 01 929 with 12k miles on it. I also own a 01 RC51. I spent 30 mins looking it over before I made my decision. He has laid it down and it was apparent that the stator cover was leaking oil. It is a great looking bike (aside from the plastic) so I decided to do it. I just got around to replacing the stator cover and the gasket only to find they R-tard never told me he smeared JB weld on the lower enging casting to plug a hairline crack. I can only assume this crack was caused by his lowside. Anyway I am fecking furious, what a douche. Does anyone know if you can weld cast aluminum? That is what I am going to try especially since the crack is no bigger than a strand of hair. FECK. The further i get into this bike the more i see what an idiot this guy is. Instead of replacing a missing bolt with a honda part, he gets some bolt he has laying around and uses that. Some more background on this A-hole. So he lowsided and pinched the front wire harness somewhere. Anyway the headlights quit working, so instead of trying to fix the problem he goes to the hardware store and buys a foglight, mounts it to the left mirror and runs to wires directly to the battery, then drills a hole in the side fairing to mount a switch. ARE YOU FECKING KIDDING ME!!!!!!!!! If you can't spend the time or the money to maintain these kick ass pieces of art then don't buy them in the first place. Sorry to vent. Anyone else have a similar problem?
