Thumbs down Bad day on the track!!!

Went to the 1/4 mile and broke my chain... the chain went up , broke all the tail , fender, chain protector and make a lots of marks in the swing arm. lucky that the ZX-10R have chain protector that protect water pump and the engine block. all happen in the first run.

I've got something to say...It's better to burn up, than to fade away!

Please, call me Burner.

sucks to hear, but at least it did not take out the engine case or your leg.

I learned how bad throwing a chain sucks back in my dirtbike days.

Was it a stock chain? if not, Riveted or clip type link.
For that matter did it break at the master-link?

Sarah Palin and friends can call it a snow machine all they want but Yamaha, Polaris and Bombardier plus the related magazines all seem to call them Snowmobiles.

Snow machines create snow on ski slopes. Just sayin'

WOW. I had a trackday ruined last week by a bunch of asshats (14 of them) who crashed in nearly every session, preventing me from getting more than ONE clean session in. After hearing about this, I have nothin' to bitch about. I hope the repairs don't keep you off the track too long.
