Well, was on the way to the gf's house the other night, turned onto Balgowlah Road, gave the Across a bit of a handful and heard: rrRRRRR---CHHHCHHHHHCHCHCH i look down and there's no drive to the chain, just a lot of rattling and grinding. Fook! Had her towed to a mechanics and got the following news yesterday, please excuse my limited knowledge. The spline for the front sprocket is buggered, completely buggered in fact, so my options seem to be: - Weld on a front sprocket and change the rear sprocket and chain. Now the life of the bike is effectively the life of the sprockets/chain (a year?) - Wreck it - Take the motor apart and replace the shaft - not even close to worth it - Replace the engine - ditto So for about 500 bucks I can have a bike to ride until I get my unrestricted licence but unless I was a very dishonest person, I could never sell it on and would eventually just have to ride it until it dies and then wreck it. Comments? Suggestions? Offers?!!
