Hi Guys, Well my little zeal has developed some problems that are beyond my expertise with a spanner. What has happened is I dropped a whole heap of oil and fluid I could not identify all up my street. I'm talking a good trail leeding about 500m down to the main road! Anyway after I realised what happened I got a bike tow to pick her up and send her off to the mechanics. Anyway the mechanic calls me up and explains to me what has happened. My fuel tank has got a lot of rust on the inside of it. It appears the bike has been sitting for quite sometime, which I don't doubt as the k's say 20,000km for a '99' bike. The rust and rubbish has made its way into the carbs causing the carbs to leak fuel into the engine. I thought this was surprising as I always keep the fuel tap off when the bike is stopped. The carbs have flooded the motor and the fuel has managed to seep its way around the pistons to the sump over filling the sump. So once the bike was running it was just ejecting all the excess fuel and oil out of the breather. Now the costs I have been quoted.... The little zeal has 4 carbs to rebuild. So this is what I've been quoted on just parts BEFORE labour... carb base o rings $140.00 inlet manifolds $516.00 needle seat kit $304.00 throttle cables $120.00 fuel tank clean and reseal (repainted after clean as paint gets damaged during cleaning) $785.00 What I don't understand is $785 to clean and spray a tank??? But in anycase I am off my LAMS now and I'm looking for a new bike. The zeal I bought for 2k about 6 months ago and it was a clean looking bike then but I've had one drop on it since then so it has a little ding on the tank and a nice scrape on the plastic under the rear seat. Realistically I don't think its worth fixing. Should I just tell the mechanic to forget about it and just put her together and trade her in or even possibly just sell her off for parts? I have feeling that seeing it's been pulled down already I'll be charged for their time which I suspect will be anywhere between 500-700 for the strip down and put together. Sooo what are everybodies thoughts? Get it fixed and sell it off for what I can or cut loses and see what I can get for it for parts or a trade. What do wreckers offer for bikes these days?
