I vote ride it. The early 950's were safe to ride, but were crude running. I did for 60k miles with all those concerns. I had the fuel pump replaced twice as a measure, and the clutch slave failed once, but I got her home. Maybe 700 miles on that slave refilling periodically at Walmart.
seems like you have not really read what the problem is!?
