Engine Seized? I'm an idiot..
So, I was riding up to work yesterday (about 35 miles on the highway just outside of Las Vegas) and my engine lost a bit of power: it started slowing down with constant throttle pressure. I let off the gas a bit and it was running alright. I gave it a bit more gas while going up a little hill and it completely shut off. I coasted to the side of the road and three hours later, was in the shop. They looked it over and found it low on oil and flakes of metal in the oil filter. I had just put oil in it maybe two weeks before. Me, being the ignorant idiot that I am, didn't realize that it was burning through oil way faster than I thought while going at highway speeds. I assume it is completely shot and no hope for recovery. Please let me know. Is there any hope? The shop said it was going to be $652 just for them to break it down the rest of the way and see what is causing the failure. Is it worth it? Should I just try to do it myself (I basically have no mechanical experience, accept helping my friend swap out an engine, one time. but have wanted to learn..)? What are your thoughts, other than I don't deserve to ride this bike because of my negligence..? Be gentle, please.
