Could you provide some information as to how you came up with this belief?

I believe oil burns at a lower temp than aluminum melts.

Cept those bushings would be porous bronze placed in a vacuum chamber to force oil into it. They do not do that for cases.

Why a vacuum chamber

I have a welding question...or sorts?

On my 1150GS, I have engine protection bars mounted, I forget the German brand....they are not BMW bars. My question is:
1) the support brace on the right side that goes back to the center stand bolt has broken off at the weld between the "tube" and and small "tab" that the mounting bold goes through.
2) what is the best way to have this rewelded? Do I remove that tab and the tube and ask a welder to do the best he can to reweld at the correct angle, or do I ask a welder to give it a spot while still on the bike and then remove it and finish the job??

Your best welding thoughts are appreciated.....

Bring the bike to the welder so he can tack it while it's on the bike. This will give you a better final fit. unplug your CDI, regulator, and any other elec boxes while things are being tacked up.

Got me hook, line, and sinker. BTW, most people find April 1st on a calendar, not a calender.

Sorry guys. Dead pan is the bane of my existence. I can't resist it at times, but then everyone thinks I'm serious, and just nods understandingly. I should have thrown in a smiley...

Wording aside, my point was, however, that cases are difficult to weld cleanly, because they do take on oil - doped and dirty oil, that is. In my experience, no amount of acetone has ever been enough to clean all the contaminants. I always had to hunker down for a drawn out fight with the dirty bubbling cracking puddle... In the end, half the time I had to seal up the area with metal-filled epoxy to avoid leaks.

But then again, I'm not a welder by trade.

Thanks, but you have me concerned about how to "unplug" everything....an 1150GS has a FEW electronic components that need to be disconnected....and I'm not sure if just pulling the fuse is enough??

Any guidance that anyone can give???
