so I blew up my 06 today...

Recommended Posts

I was practicing for next weeks race, and I broke my connecting rod and the cases... yay

Anyone know where I can get a set of cases other than a dealership?

When did it break? During high revs? How many hours are on the engine? GL w/ rebuild.

not sure on entire motor. i was planning on rebuilding it after the season, which is after next weeks race, but i personally have only put on the bike maybe 20 hrs. and it was in the higher rev range

well, no point in re-building it. wouldn't be cost effective to do so. tore the top end off and this is what i found:

broken intake bucket

bent both intake valves

skirt on pison broke

skirt on cylinder broke

crank rod broke

crank rod sittin in the case, broke a crankcase bolt in half

balancer shaft sitting sideways

balancer shaft bearing broken

2 holes in bottom of case
