clutch basket exploded it looks like. Pull off the pan and clean it out. Get a new basket from Falicon, about $500. You will have to send the gear to them to attach to the new basket. It is very rare that this happens to 14's. Pretty common on the zx12.
More than likely you will not have any engine damage.

Forgottnsoul lost his motor on his 14 one night while we were riding back from a M&G. Come to find out, it was a cam bolt that somehow backed itself out and fed itself to the motor. It probably sucked pretty bad to have a motor lock up at triple digit speeds!

The Falicon is a billet ugrade. Muzzy and MTC may have them too. Truthfully, a stock one should hold up fine. Mine has 500 passes at the strip on it.

that sucks. Whenever I replaced the clutch in my Katanna I broke the basket putting the bolts back in.

Might as well pull the 92210 nut off and get the hub out of your way to pull the basket gear off. You will have to have it as your core. That way you can check everything back there like the oil pump gear and such.

Ya I can see some small shavings back there but nothing else. I cant go back now everything in there is gonna come out. I can't chance my life on just a simple look.

As long as everything in the back is good and cleaned I should be up and running in about 3 weeks. Gonna keep my fingers crossed.

Funny I just took a couple weeks of leave from work. Timing could be better hahaha.

It seems that everytime i take a vaction I work harder. and there is more stuff to do.

Thats why I am getting an MTC basket and Muzzy hub before I start abusing my 12. But I thought the 14 was pretty bulletproof....

Doing that on the street shouldnt stress any parts to the point of breaking like that. The street just doesnt offer the traction necessary like the track. This is the first case I have seen of a 14 basket breaking. Read of one that had some stress cracks about 6 months ago but it never came apart.
Muzzy sells the basket with the 3 rivets where you dont have to send anything in. Put the basket on your gear and have someone local weld up the rivets. Just another option for you.
