Prob needs some lithium grease.

Re the throttle tamer. You can modify the original with a chainsaw file. Google Throttle Tamer then choose images at the top. Modify the original to match the cam.

Oil leak from filter screen bolt...

...or maybe the drain plug? I think it's the filter screen bolt. Either way I just replaced both bolts and all the o rings and a crush washer a few months ago for the same reason. Pretty serious leak. Both were dry for 500 miles after that but the other day something gave way and suddenly a fairly serious leak again. I rode for a few hours in 80 degrees or so that day. Bike ran great (although I could hear and feel a vibration in the lower end when it idles in gear with the clutch in. It stopped when I put it in neutral. Maybe not related?). I loaded it on the truck and saw it wet with oil at the bottom of the engine. A week and a half later I finally had time to clean it up and it had a whole skid plate full of oil and a puddle on the garage floor. All dry before that last riding day. Super weird. I drained the oil and looked at both bolts. Both had a good amount of torque and the o rings and crush washer all look good.

Any ideas on causes and fixes?

Thanks!

Stolen! Oakland strikes again...

Hey all. My 570 was stolen out of my garage. It was locked to 2 other bikes and a pole. They popped the lock and stole the 570 and a crf100 I just bought. Super bummed. I found out recently they recovered it but it's been hit by a truck. I haven't seen it. My question is does anyone think I can get anything out of it? Parts? It'll cost me 600 bucks if I leave it or take it home so if taking it home might get me a couple hundred in parts it might be worth it.
Let me know if anyone has any thoughts. Thanks!

Real Sorry on the theft. I would think you could easily make back $600 and a lot more parting it out. Depending on the damage

Wait, what??? Your bike got stolen, the police found it and it's going to cost you $600 to get it back? Please tell me I'm not reading that correctly.

I think the insurance payed off the bike then if the owner wants it back he has to pay the insurance company $600.00. Unless the bike is complete loss he should be able to get double that back parting it out. Just a shame though!

Yup. It's a seriously messed up system. It was in an accident after it was stolen. Then it was towed. Someone has to pay for the towing and my name is the only one associated with the bike. So I owe $260 for the towing and $100 per day for storage until I pick it up. The police are investigating so it's on hold by them. I'll be lucky if the police waive all the storage fees for the time they won't release it. It makes absolutely no sense.

I appreciate the info that I can part the bike out for some dough to make the towing fees back though!! I was so bummed on the whole situation I almost just let them have it. As soon as I get the bike released and get it home I'll check back in.

Thanks everyone!

a coworker's car was stolen, and then later, when he was overseas, it was found burned out

by the time he got back and could deal with it, the tow yard wanted a couple grand or else they'd send him to collections

I think he haggled it down some but it's a fucked up situation


I hope the thief was seriously hurt
