I will be going over to look at the bike tomorrow. I'll take some jumper cables and a few tools. I don't expect to get it moving, but if it turns over and runs...
The clutch master is pretty well shot, I believe, from looking at the pics.
I see that makes sense, and yea that wouldn't be good, I am sure we will find out today hopefullyThe list is endless. And often OEM costs no more than the junk.
In the case of the stator, though, OEM isn't available and the aftermarket stators often last for minutes, once running. Let's hope your stator isn't an issue.
Why? If someone did spray paint in the intake it would only be in the carb bores and won't hurt anything. Most carb cleaner sprays are lacquer thinner so should melt it right out.The thing that concerns me the most is, there was a can of paint where the air cleaner was supposed to be. If someone has been using that as a starting fluid, I fear the carbs will be unusable.
I am for sure very grateful, and gained a lot more insight than what I had going into this, I am looking forward in seeing how far along I can go with this.Hey bike and Dennis. Really nice of you to lend a hand! Sounds like he has got his work cut out for him.
At least he didn't pay too much for it.
