O..K.. So i know i messed up but now i need some advice

Ight here is the situation... i was riding to work monday morning when my bike engine just shuts off on 45. I start it back up and ride a lil further and it shuts off again. So i pull off the hwy and start it back up again, and i hear loud knocking coming from the engine. i look the bike over and realize i have no oil in the bike. I put 3 qts of oil in there and start it back up, the knocking is still there.... i load the bike on my buddies truck and take it home.

Any ideas on what the issue is and who would be the best to fix it for cheap?
(next time ill do the "bike inspection checklist" before each ride)

Just throw some antifreeze in it, and you'll be good! It mixes with the oil and prevents knocking.









j/k

Find a motor on EBAY and replace it cause that one is Fd up bad. Spun bearing and some valves have probably bent or broken as a result of no oil.

If you are changing the engine, just go with a 1K. Now is the time.
