Little off at Brands GP.

PostAuthor: tomasbe » Sat Sep 02, 2017 8:07 pm

So I had a little off at Brands, where I high sided due to hole in my crank case... I started spraying oil on my left hand side and when after 4x right handers I arrived at Stirling's Bend the rear stepped out of line a bit.
I tried to save it but only likes of Chaz Davis can do such thing, so I ended up on ...
...the floor.
Now, except crank case buggered (still don't know how it happened)...
...major parts I need to replace are:
1. Cone nose,
2. Brake lever.
3. Instrument cluster bracket.
4. Tail fairing.
The rest is rather cosmetic.

Now, I have very big question. Do I break the the bike or try to repair, i.e. find new engine to make a swap.
Decisions, decisions, decisions. Any input would be appreciated.
