Very sorry to hear that.

A year and model would really help. However, other than running out of oil, the only issue common to most Airheads is improper oil filter change with special focus on the white o-ring. You might want to research the Airhead web page by "Snowbum" and read the story of "The $2000 O-ring".

Owning an old Airhead is easy.
Keeping an old Airhead running great is the true test.
