Can I fix my bike without replacing the engine?
Howdy all. I’m dumb and left my dipstick halfway in after changing oil on my 2005 honda shadow vt750 aero. I tried starting it up and I think the dipstick got caught up in something because about 3/4 in to an inch of it got broken off, and now my engine is seized. I want to ask if there’s a way I can take off the crank case cover and yank the piece out or if the engine is totally screwed and I need a new one. As far as I know nothing else is wrong with the engine. It had about 10k miles on it and never had any issues.
