Hey guys, so right now just about the worst possible thing happened. My gf bought an '85 VF500 about 5 months ago that just needed a little tune up and TLC. For 5 months I've put too many hours into learning about this bike and fixing it up all for today. I bought it a new battery last night and let it charge all night so I could try and run the bike for the first time in the morning. I could barely sleep I was so excited. Woke up this morning, put the new battery in, got some new gas for the tank and buttoned everything up. Tried starting the bike, and it worked! You have no idea how happy I was for about 10minutes. I rode it around the neighborhood and just basked in the happiness that is working on a bike for 5 months and having it work, not to mention the VF500 is a nice step up from my ninja 250. Then I got back and noticed a tiny leak of oil near my kickstand. No biggie I thought. After all, one of the last things I'd done was change the gasket on the alternator cover. Thought I'd go down and re tighten the bolts then BAM a giant amount of oil just comes out all over. I took the cover off and my stomach sank. This is what I'm looking at guys: Am I as fucked as I think I am? Is there anything I can even do? I feel so defeated after spending so much time, money, and effort to get this thing running just to have a taste and it blow up in my face.
