Held-On & Road it Out!!

Postby 951_ninjarider » Fri Nov 04, 2011 10:26 am

Well sad news for my 650R, She gave out but she kept me safe. I was getting on the freeway on Wed. after noon for lunch when the unthinkable happened!! My Motor "GRENADED"!! and when I say grenade in mean it.

I was hitting the freeway like any other day rapping the on ramp at about 40-45mph (normal speeds for me) when she started to cut out. I backed off of the throttle and it stopped, Okay I was thinking what was that. I was now on the freeway and hit the throttle to get up to speed and the next thing I knew I was hitting the rev. limiter. A half sec. later all that was heard as a big boom!!! I looked down and all that I could see was my gauges and the top half of my tank. The rest of my bike was covered in white smoke. I looked in my mirrors cause I knew that there was a truck on my 6 and there he was all I could see was 2 headlights right on my tail. I was doing about 60-65mph when the motor failed and came to a complete stop in less than 100ft. The motor was grinding on ever rev. the rear tie was making. I was able to pull in the clutch but that did not even help. Oil all of the freeway on the truck that was behind me and all over me. But I kept her on rubber.

Last night I pulled her apart and this is what I found..........

As you can see the top of the head looks to be okay, but........

Dam that sucks man. Sorry about that. How many miles you had on that thing before it grenaded on you. I hear these motors are generally pretty reliable. :cry:
Hope you find a motor.

Don't know if you need the entire engine or not, but here's one.
Keep any eye on ebay, I've seen them on there for $500 in the past.
