What caused the failure?
Did the bike hydro lock or are you spraying or turboing the motor?

For stock / mildly built motors the stock rods work well, however if you're using a power adder like NOS or a turbo I'd recommend using Carillo rods.

Give me a call in the a.m. and we can quote you a set.

Also look into Crower rods.... They are a little cheaper then Carillos and hold plenty of power..... That being said, you should be fine with stock rods. I would like to know how you "bent" a rod....other then hydro locking it, I don't know how you could have just bent a rod....especially with no other damage...ie. bent valves, smacked pistons etc.

How do you know the rods bent at 3am?

You tore the motor down right after something happened?

It was from the night before and my brother use to work for suzuki.

But my guess is it some how built up too much compression in my crank case wich threw my pcv valve wich basicly poured oil into my throttle body then into the top of the motor which hydro locked with oil. any other guesses ?

Id do a little more diag before starting to assume you bent a rod, unless its hanging out of the crank case.
