I am back with yet another question.
I have a BMW R1200GS motorcycle which i ride daily for everykind of purpose from commuting Between places A & B, to drifting on a track or dirtstretch
Last week i was cleaning up my garage when i bumped on a magnesium engine head cover i had replaced last year.
The damn thing was pretty expensive to get replaced.
I gazed at it just to remember there were no signs of a fall what so ever!
It looks brand new except for that hairline crack that can be seen from the inside. - That caused oil to leak onto the ignition system of the one (of
two for each cylinder) spark plug causing it ti missfire and cause a disturbed engine operation...
Naturally the question that rises is how one can fix that.
I had a look around to find that you can weld magnesium. However i figured out that this is not a job that can be done by the usual fix it all type of
Do you know any better?
Any chance you knew of a resin to do the job?
The cylinder head cover gets quite hot, not like the engine, but when its fully warm you cannot have your hand on it for too long.
