I just got the bike last weekend, and yesterday was my first "real" ride other than cruising the neighborhood. It was a blast, the bike had massive amounts of power, I can't remember the last time I had that much fun with a bike But as I was riding home, it made a slight clunk in a corner, followed by a very short misfire, like a heart missing a beat and then continuing as if nothing was wrong. Four minutes later, it made another sound, this time a not so slight bang (which probably woke up the kids and the elderly around the county), and the engine died. As I came to a stop I concluded that there was a massive loss of compression, and I crossed my fingers that the plug had been shot out or that the head gasket was blown... I arranged to bring the bike home, but couldn't get around to messing too much with it yesterday. The plug was ok, though, and I guess the head gasket is fine as well.. I removed the rear valve cover and checked if there was any movement as I turned the engine. Nothing. So I hit a bottle of wine and went to bed Does anyone know if the engine from a 2001 TE610E will fit my bike, as there is one for sale nearby? Mine is kicker only, left side, no battery or magic button to fire it up.
