My New Nightmare
I found a tuner who did an amazing job tuning my bike. He installed the PCV. Mikey Cohen came highly recommended by Bassani and he did not dissapointed.
The bad news is I noticed a bolt was missing from my pulley when I arrived. Turned out that at least one other bolt was loose as well and partially stripped. He bolted it in best he could and told me to get it back ASAP to rethread the wheel and put in different bolts.
We both thought I could get it home and bring it back. Besides, I needed to replace the rear tire. ( I already had some tires in my garage I could put on so I would bring those when I brought the bike back.)
Well, when I got home this is what I found: from what I can tell I lost the other bolt. (I looks like the hole is stripped), the swing arm is broken, there is dent in the pulley, the retaing clip for the axle is bent.
I think my best scenario is to replace the wheel, tire, pulley and swing arm. Parts alone will range from $2100 to $2700 depending on who I get them from. I can't imagine what labor will cost.
