chain broke on bike, help

Its a 2004 gsxr and im trying to figure out how to fix it, im going to be picking it up from a friend.
The chain shrivled up on the front sprocket when the chain busted and blew the original clutch cover, so the weak point is where the bolts go in, the bunny ears, its the bunny ears that are busted out, its on the block where the clutch cover bolts go in, any help or suggestions would help, he was saying the only way I can fix it is by getting a short block, but im sure there is other ways..like tape and dyeing the bolt holes or something, help

Ill pay someone to fix it.

If you want to pay someone then just get Motorcycles Unlimited or another shop to take a look.

I agree with lanzer913 - probably a bunch of damage there and you don't want to miss something and then get it all back together.

The problem may lie in aluminium block/cover and steel bolts/alignment pins.


Second, the shift rod is usually right in harms way.... that's trouble.

Charlie, you need to check the following parts:

1)Obviously the clutch cover will be broke
2)The clutch pusher/cable assy(the thing that mounts inside the clutch cover)
3)Water pump
4)Engine cases(lots of times when the chain up in there, it cracks the engine cases, also if the chain just whips through it will slap the cases and crack em)
5)Sprocket and output shaft on tranny(but if the shaft is cracked, you won't see it but it will break eventually)


I think you should probably stay away from it unless you are getting a good deal. You are not easily just gonna "swap the short block"..... AKA. buy a new/used engine. The amount of work/time/experience needed to swap engine cases is not even worth it, not to mention the VIN #s on the cases won't match the frame.

Just walk away..

A 2005 will have all of the bolt holes you mention on the lower of three cases. Unlike most older bikes with upper and lower cases, there are 3 main engine cases on that gixxer. With the motor out of the bike I think you can easily replace the lowest case without doing anything special to the engine internals. Just let the parts lie where they are.

Good luck, this could get very expensive fast.
