    2000 aprilia rs 250

    Hi guys I've got a yellow and grey aprilia rs 250 and something has broke in the gear box and caused a tiny hole in the gear box casing, I'm wondering what it would cost to fix up or would I be better of finding a new engine for the bike ( and where would I find one)

    And what could I sell the bike for as is?

    It would cost me about $2 to fix the hole in the case since I would pull the case, clean it up and aluminum braze it with an AlumaLux type rod that works with a standard plumbing torch.

    See: https://www.harborfreight.com/8-piec...ods-44810.html

    I have been using this low temperature (730 degree Fahrenheit) rod for years and its made not that far from where I live just across the other side of Tampa Bay in Bradenton Florida. Its stronger than mild steel and what I will use to fill a bolt hole for retapping and other aluminum repairs that are not in extreme high temperature areas.

    If its the clutch crankcase and not the lower engine block that part is about $200 at AF1 plus whatever blew up inside such as the clutch. How long have you had the bike and how many miles are on it?

    I would find out what has broke in the gearbox first. The hole could be aluminium welded and would not be a problem. The gearbox comes out of the side anyway so can be done in the frame. Or you could take the engine out if the bike needs a good service.
