86 Rebel, ran dry on oil and over heated.
So i reckon it all started like 6 months ago, some guy cause a 4 car pile up ahead of and i had about 20 feet to stop while going 30 to avoid the pick up infront of me. When i attempted to stop the bike layed down and slid, throwing my ole lady off the back n i went down with the ship. Luckly we both made it out ok, but the bike leaked a small amount of oil for about a week. Than it stopped, i assumed it was cause she layed down and the oil sloshed somewhere it shouldnt and was draining out. Well fast forward a few months and its bike week, we go for a ride out to St. Augustine from Daytona Area. Ran great all day, well the ride home i got about 3 miles from home and we hit a red light. As were sitting i notice it rumble a little funky and i seen puffs of smoke coming out of the exhaust. Than she died. Never to crank again. Push the button and noting happens. I looked down the side of the bike and there was oil everywhere. Apparently the original accident cause a small leak and oil grime plugged said leak, than after a few hundred miles straight it warmed up, loosed up and dumped all the oil.
Since than i have removed the Enigine, Head, Cylinder, and one piston.
Classic 86 Rebel 250
