    Shredded

    The aftermath... And a tooth missing on transmission gear.. But of course it's not just a gear.. It's the God damn shaft with the built in gear.... it's a sad day today...

    This is probably a longshot.. But does anyone out there know what size bolts I would use with my case splitter? I work at a machine shop and made my own splitter... ( I know I'm cheap)

    OK so I have a busted main crank Baring on stator side... Case is apart.. Both sides... It splits in 3... I haven't split it open yet.. Just took a look at the clutch side... If you notice in picture.. Is that a crack? And the reason the Baring busted apart? Also I can't find and pieces of the cage.. A couple chunks but like... The whole cage is gone.. Where the fluck did it go

    Clink clink gone.. Clink clink... Gone

    Well the spark plug I purchased was from my dealership... I would hope they gave me the right one... And yes the plug broke just beneith the area the socket would land... Also for some &%$#@!ed up reason.. The tip of the spark plug was bent backwards... The part that curves around where the spark is was litterly bent the other way
  6. I'm sorry if this post is not in the right spot and apologize.. I have a 2007 kx450f with a noise that comes and goes... When in idle it sounds fine.. Rev a bit and this God awful noise comes on.. Right side of bike. mostly top end I'm guessing.. I just had it apart, replaced the timing chain, and top of piston looked fine.. Walls of cylinder still have hatch marks.. And no slop in the piston inside of the cylinder. I would really like to find out before I explode it.. It's hard to describe the sound but it really just sounds like knocking and then goes away after the rev finishes... It's very distinctive and deffintly abnormal... Yes there's oil and coolant.. No flakes in oil.. Timing is on... But here's one for ya.. I took the top case off because the threaded part of the spark plug broke off.. And the end piece of the spark plug that curves around was bent in the opposite way... I can see a mark on the piston where it hit that piece of the spark plug but I have replaced the spark plug.. I don't know.. It's bad though...

    Stators falling off

    So this is twice now that this has happend and I'm just wondering if I'm missing something... Stator screws came loose and broke the coil enough where I had to push home.. Took it apart and all screws backed out and shattered one of the screw sockets.. So I soldered back that stator and lock tight the 3 screws I had left on the stator.. Same thing happened again today.. Screws backed out and it was finished.. Another push up hill both ways... Am I missing something with these things before I put my on order one in? (2007 kx450f)

    Piston choice with pics

    So took it into a local bike shop here and buddy says the 57mm piston is a little slack in the cylinder (like I'm talking a hair size to slack) And says to bore it to next size but the guy to bore it says after all said and done I'm looking at about 350 parts and labour.. That's a little rediculious concidering the bike it's going into.. Is there an easyer way around this? New piston ring for 20 bucks or something? I'm in st. Catharines Ontario if anyone's from around here

    In all honesty, iv ordered the gasket kit already, and was just going to pick up another ring and throw it on there. I have a honer.. Was going to suffer it up a bit and cross my fingers.. I'm going to to garage very soon I'll post pics of the inside.. And then you guys can maybe give me a better idea of what I should do...
