I JUST got my urban express running today, with help from here of course. Tonight on the way home from a short ride the motor suddenly died on me when we got up close to 30 and almost sent me flying.. I was in traffic and excited so I just kicked her back up and kept riding. All was well and good in the world until I got back up to about thirty going downhill, when she locked up again and DID send me flying this time. Luckily for me it was wet and raining and cold, so I got to take an epic slide down the hill I was on.. I survived and so did my jeans, and somehow so did my engine. I kicked it up yet again and drove the rest of the way home and then saw that there was oil all over the carb and the line was out. I guess I luckily avoided a true hard seize, but I did run the bike about a mile after it happened the first time, and restarted it three times.. Is there damage done in there that's going to surface soon? It's been running fine since I plugged the oil line back in, feels good, gets up to speed, no weird noises. Everything I read online points to my engine quiting someday in my near future because of this. Someone tell me I got lucky and everything is gonna be ok, it was literally the second time riding the damn thing.. And I already have parts on the way from treats lol
