Haven't posted much for a while cause i was too busy enjoying life on two wheels. Alas my stupidity got the better of me (again). So last Thursday i was in a hurry to work, parked the bike outside the building, this was the day i decided it was too much of a hassle to carry my usual 5kg chain in my pack so just used the steering lock and walked off. Later that day as i'm photocopying various papers of an office nature i have the shocking realization that I FORGOT THE CLOSE THE FUEL TAP. So of i run to turn it off. There is a puddle of petrol underneath the bike, i think nothing of it, turn the tap off and walk back to work, thinking it would evaporate by the time i get back. Then i work for about 4 hours. After witch i get back to the bike, fully geared up, music playing, ready to depart before peak hour traffic. Key in, kill switch off, thumb the starter and CLICK. Nothing happens, so i do it again. It clicks and nothing happens. Now my battery is fine and i can hear the starter motor move a tiny tiny bit, so it cant be my battery. THE BOTTOM LINE I hydro locked the engine. Got towed home. Today i went and bought some fresh oil cause i was under the impression there was fuel in my oil. Later i found out that it was fine and an oil change was/is a waste of money. but an EVEN MORE BOTTOMER LINE I turned the oil drain bolt the wrong way and striped the thread on the sump. And now its leaking a fair amount. By fair amount i mean all, cause after tightening it, i was able to take it out by hand and bottle the oil for future use. I can't get a new sump because the stoped making my bike a good 25 years ago. I've heard of helicoils and seems to be the way to go, but don't know where to get it, or if i should just go to a mechanic with the sump in hand.
