They are going to take some time, gotta get a complete list, and really diagnose the seriousness of the issues. Probably a month or so after waiting on shipping and other setbacks.

Super thanks to MH people who will be named later for stepping up to help me out in a time of need. Too many to list here, and more to add.

I don't know if there is anywhere around here that would be willing to repair that head, if possible... even with the close up, and in person the crack didn't seem to significant but if it is leaking, well duh.

Lemme know if you need anything; I do have that plastic welder that jerzy will be borrowing here shortly too.

As far as repairs myself and lisiecki1 has offered up his experienced services to help me get her back running correctly. I won't know how bad it is untill I crack the case and see if there is rub from the crease, or if it cracked all the way through. It was leaking oil methinks when I brought it in, but to be honest, after smacking the pavement and getting run over by my own bike, I wasn't really in the mood to start damage assesments. Right now I'm too sore to really be turning wrenches anyway.

That's why we need to keep it to the forest; too many gnomes lost at the track.... we get confused without all those trees around.

how r you feeling Joe ?? glade you ok
now on the head issue,you either have spend a lot to replace new head-that involve engine works or i think you can remove valves cover (needed new valve cover gasket when re-intall) to see if that cracked have any interferance to timming chain or rail/guide..etc...if it look good then you can jb weld-epoxi both sides the cracked...i very positive can be done this way and save big $ for other needed parts / repairs.i m pretty sure me and Caligonetx able spare time to help you on this !!! call Matt ,we'll come over.We need you on "forest" lead ,hahaha

Injuries aren't bad. Broken left pinky and sore bones. No cuts just bruises. I rolled a couple times with the bike on top of me. SUCKY.
