I AM AN IDIOT

just thought i would share my retarded story with you and it does involve the powerstroke sort of. today i jumped in the truck in a hurry and forgot i was parked right next to my zx9r. well i backed out and cut the wheel right into the bike, knocked it over, and broke off the foot peg where it mounts to the frame and cranked the engine case cover, all 4 quarts of oil leaked out. i was very upset. sorry just needed to vent

You can try the jb weld on the engine case. But if it was me, I would see how much a shop with a tig welder would charge to fill the crack.

I have had jb weld start leaking oil after a while. I had a cracked engine case on a atv engine. After awhile it started leaking again. Ended up grinding off the jb weld and having it tig welded.
