Question about 1986 Laverda GS 125 Lesmo
Yesterday I snapped 2 header bolts for the exhaust. They are on the same exhaust pipe. The result is an exhaust leak.This happened between paychecks so getting it fixed right now isn't possible. I use the bike to commute about 100 miles a day round trip. Will this hurt the bike to run it like this until I can get someone to remove the bolts ? I would try but they are broken down in the bolt hole. But just wondering if it is ok to run until fixed ?
I wouldn't run it like that until you get those bolt holes cleaned out. The exhaust gases will leak out and burn/melt stuff nearby and you run the risk of scorching an exhaust valve requiring a head-job. And a head-job isn't as much fun as it sounds like it would be.,,
