Blame the attorneys, greedy customers and insurance companies. (but mostly attorneys ) A friend in Britain has a Porsche Boxter that only costs around $250 for 6 months and his 883 Sportster is £83 a year. My stepdaughter had an accident in her car (nothing to do with me or registered in my name) My insurance mare than doubled just because car was registered at the same address. I'm 62 with a totally accident free record (I don't think a speeding ticket in a different country in 1980 counts?)You have no idea what high insurance rates are, up here if you were a new rider trying to insure and plate that old 125, you would be looking at several thousands of dollars annually.
Almost a certainty.Ha ha.........never had it filled to know.
Bet it didn't, but might have been the reason for the fried top end.
You'll need to strip oil pump plus check all the passages, restrictors, clutch cover oilways, etc.
