That happened to a buddy of mine's Busa, We took the pan off just for safe measures and checked up inside for any loose particles of metal. flushed the motor with some cheap oil and then got it all put back together, and ran it for about 15 minutes then changed the oil again, Just incase there was any metal shaving in the motor that we couldn't see.

Sucks man............ but dont lose the faith. This is the kind of thing you never here about in a 14. As for replacement. I hear over and over again that the stock is the way to go............. supposed to be one of the best out there and in most cases the most forgiving. Its does get worse though.......... as mntioned before try having your motor lock up at 1?? mph...... i was screaming like a little girl in my helmet.......... amazing warranty paid for everything........

Well im just making my parts list and still cleaning it out. It seems that I might go with falicon. But im also looking at big bore kit.

At this point this is the time for me to look at performance all the way since I have the motor apart. Its now or never. Im still undecided.

You would only be able to go with a 2mil overbore for the street and you will have to completely disassemble the engine and send off the cases to be bored and nikasil coated. Bore job and pistons will cost you right at 1500 bucks. A 3mil stroker crank from Adams with stock bore stroker pistons can be done for around 1900 bucks and you dont have to send off the cases. Gilbert Coronado that races a Highlands 14 has the stroker in the bike he runs. Unfortunately, you just cant spend the weekend to put a big bore jug set on the 14 like you can a Busa. The cylinders and crankcase are a unified piece. Everything is more expensive to do.

I'm liking that attitude.....

2 or 3 mil piston kit, Carpenter head and cams. Also look up Adams Performance for some of that stuff. Coby Adams is the man with Kawasakis...

Aw man, I just read your post about the integrated jug into the upper case....That sux. Definetly makes it a PITA to get it bored/plated etc.

Prolly best off just leaving the bottom end stock and throw a good head/cam package in it. Strokers are nice for the TQ but often eat bearings on the street(on the busas anyway, I have never done a 14)....Prolly not worth the hassle for a daily street rider.

Definetly do the head/cams and possibly a thinner head gasket/cut the head some to get some compression in it. You should be able to make 200rwhp and still be reliable as stock.
