My 10 puked it's guts out the back of the cases...

Hey guys... new to the forum here... I have an 07 10 that the clutch basket grenaded and took out the whole tranny... blew a hole out the back of my cases just in front of the swing arm... I'm going back with JE 13.5 pistons and having the head worked, and cams... doing the 1st gear mod and a few other things... I've done quite a bit of searching and found some good stuff... was wanting to get a current opinions on what cams to go with... the fac race cams not available now so I'm not sure who to go with... any suggestions??? the mechanic at the dealer is suggesting I stay with the stock bore and not to go with the overbore because of reliability and heat issues... I'm not experienced with it so I have no ideal... it does get very hot here in the summer...

Thanks for your help and letting me be a part of your forum...

Yeah... they didn't even question it... the shop manager was even suprised they didn't want to know more about it... he told them the basket came apart and took out the rest of the motor and they said ok fix it... it pretty much destoyed the motor... of course it came apart right around redline in second gear so you can imagine the damage it done... i'll post up some pics later if you guys want...

trying to decide if the overbore is worth it and what cams to go with...

Yea, Kawi knows its an issue but is staying hush hush about it and just fixing them no questions asked, which is a good thing, but it could kill someone, luckily mine exploded right after 60'

Here are a few pics of the carnage...

Yeah it could have been ugly if I had been running out the top or with a passenger or deep in a turn... don't even want to think about what if...

It let go the top of 2nd just before redline... which is cruising pretty good... made the most horrendous noise then locked up the rear tire and I slid to a stop... good times... lucky I didn't go down I guess...
