Ran transmission w.o oil, now funny noise

Recommended Posts

So the oil drain bolt fell out at some point on the last ride I went on. Today I took my bike out and didn't get 5 miles from home before it started to make a grinding/clinging sound.

Obviously I have to split the cases to inspect but what can I expect for damage?

Has this ever happened to anyone?

I have no idea how the frail bolt fell out but I'm assuming the bearings are toast along with some gear ware

Thanks I'm hoping to order the initial parts this week so when I get back from a business trip I can tear it down.

Thoughts on a used transmission as a new one is well over $600
