So it all ended

Well, went out for a ride this morning with BrutusTX and Irish and the fog was terrible!!!:BangHead: Well, we get to 290 and Field store Rd. and decide to stop up the road for breakfast. Well, we take off and I get on it and the masterlink in my chain came apart. Bike turns off, I get off and look and GD it!!! I was !!!! Well, put the bike in N and start it up and oil starts spewing from the tranny case. It looks like a 1"x1" piece of metal sheered off right behind the front sprocket. Is the mid section of the motor all one piece with the tranny or are they separate. I think I have an extra motor with good cases (but an internal rod knock/spun bearing), but how much work am I looking at? I can drop the motor and tear it down, but not sure about putting it back together. Anyone done this before? I am so ticked right now!!!!!:BangHead: :BangHead: :BangHead: I've had that chain on for like 4 months now, why now? Thanks for hearing my venting off! Maybe it's time for a 07 Gsxr 750

Oh, and thanks to Clyde and his wife for getting me back home!!!

I know some racers that have had good luck with getting that welded up.

Sometimes, and engine with a knock can also damage the cases- depends on if the rod or whatever bearing failed loosens things up enough to hit the cases too.

I'd see about getting it welded- sometimes it works well, sometimes it doesn't.
Yeah, I'm talking about my ZX7, I can see a 1"x1" "hole" on the top of the case and a crack beyond that (can't tell how far it goes w/out tearing into it).
Can you PM your contact or one that you know of that would be good at welding. I do not have a rod knock on the motor in the bike now. I was referring to the "spare" motor I may still be able to get a hold of. I was able to crank the motor for a couple of seconds, but I was losing some oil so I turned it off.

BigComfy,
I may be calling you.

Clayton, there is a hole and we couldn't find the 1"x1" piece that is missing. Does that stuff "cure" quickly in place to hold its form and does it bond to all metals? Btw, what type of metal are the cases made of? :eh:

I plan on pulling the motor regardless, and when I do that, I will pull off the oil pan and take a look

I had a similar issue. All of my bolts on the cush drive sheered off at speed in a corner. The chain messed up the waterpump, the countershaft cover, the clutch pushrod, and the swingarm. I fixed it. I had a guy weld up some places and I built some new stand off post for the counter shaft cover. It worked fine for about 10K miles more. Then I ended up blowing that motor.

You work for beer
if your pulling the motor you may as well just find the piece, drain all liquid, take it to a machine shop and have them fill it in right. i payed 120 bucks to get the bell housing put back on a transmission... see below...

it broke apart when i totalled my other truck at the red line.. the front part that mounts to the motor stayed on the motor and the rest stayed on the part of the truck that didnt get tooooo fukd up. (i fixed it bc it was my 5 speed mustang tranny that i put in the truck, also bought a new frame and put it back together :icon_bigg I <3 that truck) so 120 got it put back together.. filling that hole would be minor.. i'd say shop min. of like 50 bucks.
