And there I was just sitting next to the bike contemplating my next move, when my eye was drawn to a mark on the rear engine mounting.... rub, rub..... no that's a crack - F#$K!
Yup the engine casing is cracked at the rear engine mounting point.
Still it's done, what do I do next? The engine is held with a big lump of casing as you can see from the photo, and the bolt goes all the way through, so I am not sure if this is really serious. The sensible thing to do however is to strip it down again, and get this welded up. Which is a right pain!
