What Did You Break Recently?

Recommended Posts

There's a thread for everything else, so why not the "oh snap!" pics and funny stories of what people broke on their bikes? Pics or not, let's get a good thread going!

As usual, OP starts off.

I've somehow managed to break 2 fuel valves so far. First one was meh, second one was a POS the shop put on in a hurry that broke in one ride for no reason.

Levers. Can't go without snapping a lever or two. Lookin into bark busters soon.

Now for the weird part. Today when I pulled in to take a break, I looked down at my bike and noticed that I had no kick starter. I panicked, figuring it was long gone, and looked down at my feet to see it sitting there. ***?

Nothing was even damaged, the threads on the kick starter and the hole that fastens it on are perfectly fine. For the rest of the day, I just kept it in my bag, and when I needed to start it, put it on, kicked, then removed and put it back in my bag. 👍 ghetto

Three weeks ago wile practicing for the race season, I crashed on a 80ft step up, broke my arm and shatterd and dislocated my wrist. I had to have emergency surgery to restore blood flow to my hand. I'm left with 1 plate three screws and 6 pins and lots of pain. Im trying not to take pain killers, I don't want to become dependant on them.

Nothing! 👍 I'm going on 7 months since I have broke anything. I did bend a radiator guard, creased a shroud, and ripped a grip, so I think I'm doing damn well for as much improvement as I've made in that time period.

I was going to say you dropped a valve.... I've bought a bike like that. You gotta love four strokes!

I love my smoker 🙂

I love mine too, I just had to try a few thumpers to see why everyone liked them so much...... or hated them.👍

Sorry for getting off topic.🤣
