DRZ broke again

At 9500 miles my bike lost a crank bearing and suzuki rebuilt it under the extended warrenty $2200 no cost to me. Now rideing yesterday I was getting off the freeway I downshifted to forth and got a huge clunk from the engine. The bike idles fine but It has a huge nock shakes the hole bike, seems like the crank bearing again.... the bike only has 12,500 miles on it only 3000 miles since the rebuild and now it is out of warrenty.

Sounds like it might be the counter balancer. Time for an exploratory.

How does the oil look and when and how often were you changing it?

I changed the oil after 250 miles the first time then I went 2000 the second each time there was a little blob of junk on the drain plug I called suzuki and told them and they said it was normal after a rebuild??

You go 2k on intervals? I change mine earlier....but maybe I overdue it.

If they didn't clean the engine out along with the frame oil tank, you may have debris from the first failure. And 2k is a little high for oil changes.
