Mine is fixed

I never did pull the relief spring, but I did pull off the fly-wheel to get at the oil pump. And sure enough, I had...

+1 on what Solo Lobo says.

Biggest question is how much do they want for it? If it's $500 you have some wiggle room, but if it is $5500, better be pretty damn good.

Laugh Thanks for sharing

Very nice.:clap I have a GoPro and two days ago got a R1200GSA, now I can't wait to play with them together.

Thanks for the tips. I would like to replace both so that I won't have to go back in again.
