I was planning to take apart the bike in the winter for a paint job. Perhaps I would replace the head then. Winter is always around the corner up here. All I hope that it hold up till then.

And especially when you don't even get to ride it as much. But I did take it for a ride yesterday, and it drove well. I just need to get a new battery for it as the battery is really old with its one foot in the grave and the other foot on a banana peel.

What happened to the teeth???
But if the case is not damaged behind the gears where the support shafts hold them it isn't so bad. The gears can be replaced easily, not the engine case.

This is why I prefer kick starts. The teeth are gone, and has worn the teeth on the new starter motor. The gear shaft is broken on the reducer gear. And now the damn flywheel won't come out. 🤦🏽‍♂️
