On partzilla, individual gears are about 50-85 a piece, a single shift fork is 50, and drums are 112 a piece. Worst case, if all of that was shot, it would be many hundreds of dollars in parts alone. If the actual gears in the trans are okay, and I just need a new fork or two and a drum, its still over 200 bucks, perhaps best case. But then I'll need some new gaskets, new fluids, probably some new bolts that are consumables and must be replaced once removed, and the bolts and gaskets are probably at least a hundred for all of them...
This is not looking good. Best case, if only a few pieces in there need to be replaced, probably looking at 300+ in parts only. Worst case, looking at probably 6-700 dollars in parts only... Those numbers don't look too great to me. That is probably well approaching half of the selling value of the bike, without even factoring in the weeks it would even take me to fix it. I am all for doing the work, but I think Id rather put hundreds of dollars into the new bike fund instead.
What do you guys think? I could sell it to someone learning to ride, and that could be someone's cheap entry into learning to ride.
I just keep putting in a hundred dollars here, a hundred there, a new set of head bearings here, fixing up the cush drive, it all just keeps adding up, and I might be in for just getting a new bike. Again, on a steep budget since I can't work much during school, and if a fresher bike can start saving me money, I am in.
Any more ideas before I start thinking about listing it up? Thanks for the help guys.
