I'm never done anyway, "if ya can't ride, fiddle with it" has always been my motto I even took it out to the desert near my house and got it dirty this afternoon.

A good friend will take you trail riding, an ADV friend will double back and say, "how did you get down there?"

Sooo... I'm gutted

Well the tranny oil was NOT OK (note to self, it's not just mocha milshake to worry about, pepto bismal is bad too ) and as I dug into it to see what I needed to order the news got worse, look what I found behind the impeller

soI guess I need to order a new case? the casing behind the impeller is one piece I think?
Brewtus you may now giggle and do the I told you so dance (you cn make fun of my car next month

That doesn't look good at all....

You might be able to Tig the holes, then have someone clean it up with a mill. That would require spitting the case. Bummer. I am a little amazed that the coolant ate the aluminum. I wouldn't have guessed that would happen. Motobene?

I guess you could try JB weld or high grade epoxy. Die grinder out the holes, smooth it into place with a couple of layers. If it works, let us know.

I fixed a `92 with JB weld around 2000. As far as I know it`s still running. PS. That is not aluminum.

Is it magnesium then? If so, I have to guess Tig is out. That might be pretty exciting in a 4 alarms sort of way.

I saw the strawberry milkshake on the rocks today and knew that something still wasn't right.
I'd buy a new seal and set it in place with some JB weld until I could justify splitting the cases. Bummer.

I do, but I still wanna get it fixed. I might want to go to San Yo when nobody's around I guess i could get a gasket set, try the JB weld, and then if it doesn't work get the new case before SanYo in November. It won't really hurt it any worse will it?

Magnesium is easily welded, but while cracks in cases caused by impact damage are no problem at all, corrosion damaged parts must be blast cleaned first, which in some cases leads to the damage becoming much worse, and becoming difficult/impossible to repair.

Best option for your case is to blast clean, then repair the damage immediately using Devcon titanium putty. There is a good possibility that will work for the time you own the bike, but without removing all of the corrosion with blast cleaning the repair will only last a short time.

No giggle and "told you so" dance. I was really hoping that it was just a seal and not a magnesium case issue. That sucks.

Don't worry, I'll hold off until next month on telling you about my plans to make a Jennifer Aniston mask for your homely car.
