I blew up my R1 tonite!

haha...


So me, Will (A303), and Max (Max) are riding down through Crabb River, and we hit a good straightaway. We take off, doing a tad bit over the speed limit, and out of nowhere my makes a loud BLAM!, and cuts off. I pull over and start it back up, and it's knocking like CRAZY. It had EXACTLY 10,000 miles on it (literally...the odometer read 10,000), and I had the oil changed (for free, under my badass warranty) at ExImport last week, 400 miles ago. I've had zero problems with it before tonite, no knocking or anything...and , I got the oil changed a week ago!

So we push the bike down the road a bit, Will goes and gets his truck, and we haul the Raggedy1 back to my apartment on the northside. Browsing on R1forums.com, it seems that the 04 R1's had a problem with spinning rod bearings.




But that isn't the best part. When I bought the bike in April, I paid for the full warranty for everything....100% parts & 100% labor for 2 years beyond the factory Yamaha warranty.


Hellz yeah!

Sorry for your mishap, but congratrs on having the extended warranty. I wonder if they will just replace the busted parts or are you looking to get a whole new engine?

So how many of those 10000 miles were spent on the back wheel, riding wheelies?
