got up early and managed to limp my rc to the motorcycle garage and its in good hands now. it didnt go without a fight tho, it started doing a bit of everything tbh:
clutch couldnt get the bike into first and kept slipping
it started running on one cylinder again after 5 min of riding
it had a fuel warning light, but didnt want to stop on the way, in case it refused to start again and id make a dick of myself on the petrol station floor court, so i rode past it and kept going and it ran out of fuel just short of the motorcycle garage. so i had an early morning 200meter rc51 push workout
the guy will be changing the oil and filter and catch tank (providing he doesnt have an probs with that bastard sump plug bolt)
coolant and air filters, panel screw replacements.
brake fluid change, i did the front and rear pads myself along with new brake and clutch levers so the brakes will feel awesome once done.
clutch fluid change, which hopefully will help sort the clutch slippage and 1st gear select probs.
spark plugs, which should fix the running on one cylinder and lazy startup probs.
hes gonna have to keep it in over night as ive also asked him to extend my sidestand and hes noticed a bit of play in the rear wheel.
so im gonna leave it with him as long as he needs it, then bend over a desk and take whatever charges hit me like a good boy.
but my rc should be pretty sorted after hes done with it and ready for good times ahead. fingers crossed it goes smoothly, ill be hearing the news tomo
