But there is a stark lack of understanding of engines in general here.... Shocking actually.... I have been a rider and race engine builder for over 40 years... And I don't think I have ever seen a group with this complete of a lack of understanding.... If the symptoms have been described correctly... There was a catastrophic engine failure... Yea so you say it’s catastrophic engine failure from the info given so far. Ok . So what.. It’s just a guy giving his initial experience of his bike breaking and sharing. It’s always a bummer when your bike breaks. Some here probably have never worked on a 4 stroke or any bike and some are engine builders like you. But continue telling all of us how much smarter you are and how dumb everyone else is. I know youve told us all how you’re “ doing us all a favor”. Gee thanks . No matter just wait and stay tuned. You can be thrilled Krans bike had catastrophic failure or maybe it’s something else. Whatever. It will come out in time.
