Got some horrible news, please help with advice
I recently took my 04 cbr in to check on an oil leak problem i have been having.
I just got a call this morning saying i have a crack in my crank case. Not sure how it happened since my bike has never been laid down or wrecked. I guess it may have been there from the previous owner and has over time increased.
At any rate the shop says it will cost around $1600 for the new crank case and parts they need to fix it and then another $1700 in labor to lower the engine out of my bike and fix it.
This is something I cannot afford nor do I really want to put that kind of money into it considering I only paid $3300 for the bike.
Does this sound like a ton of $$ to anyone else? And should I just cut ties while I can and try to sell it off?
Any advice or ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks all
