what's damages occur when the chain breaks?

Seeing that there was an incident in one of the rides today, I thought to inquire about what type of damages could occur to the bike. I read that He might need a new block? how does this get damaged from the chain breaking? is it like a timing belt/chain effect where the valves get bent as well? Thanks for the info.

i see. so it's more the flailing effect rather than something mechanically inside? What does a snapped chain feel like? like bike goes in neutral, is there a warning sign? or just "Oops, ure ".

Yep. Been there, done that.

No mechanical issue inside, just the damage the chain can do. It's like you hit neutral.

oops your LOL. the engine revs up, no more foward motion, if your lucky it doesn't hit you in the shoulder back, or get caught in the wheel and lock it up. i,ve seen a chain just be laying in the road, no damage to bike or rider, it just depends

I've also heard of chains whipping off and either hitting the rider of the bike or the rider behind him.

yea... chain came around and slapped the motor and my girls leg...
i think i just need a new water pump, but ive heard of it actually cracking the case on the motor.
she is still limping...
as far as what it feels like... luckily i was exiting a turn and it snapped when i layed on the throttle. no warning just a quick rev like its in neutral, and coolant everywhere, with my girl screaming in pain...

What causes this? Poor maintenance? Cheap chain? Bad luck?

it can be (for what was seen) poor installation, or premature locking pin failure or master link whatever they call it..of course maintenance plays the mayor role for longivity of the chain.
I replaced mine even though mechanic check told it could be adjusted for a shorter time. just count your miles, oil, lube, tire psi, coolant, etc.

like "blanco" told me today; we toy with our bikes and our lives at the same time, which one is more important..?

also when the chain snaps you can always put it in reverse or hit the "AWD" button.

In his case it may have not been adjusted correctly for a passenger. With extra weight it should be a bit looser. Being too tight while the acceleration due to exciting the corner may have caused it to break. Just a thought.

The chain can wad up around the counter shaft sprocket and bust the out of the case as well as bend the shaft.

Yeah I can imagine a chain spinning that rapidly could cause some serious "whip-like" damage... I saw a fella on 45 with a broken chain on a tiller i pulled over and asked if everything was alright, luckily only the chain broke as there was no roadside fix to attempt in his situation.
