Well folks, I have some bad news. Some internal motor parts decided that they no longer wanted to remain inside of the case and chose to try to escape. A rod snapped and lodged itself in the case, and the piston that had been connected to that rod shattered. The head also suffered some damage and other misc parts also received significant damage. The case is going to have to be replaced as well as basically every thing else. Anyway sorry it took so long to post up what went wrong but now you know. It looks like my super motor will have to wait. I think I'll just have to go with another stock motor and save some money up. I am just glad that when all of this went down the bike remained upright and my ass remained off of the pavement. :eek:ccasion1

Glad to hear you made it okay.
Are you going to be selling any salvagable parts off the old motor?

Thanks, and no not selling anything for a few reasons but the main one is there isn't much left that's salvagable.

Just curious, after my incident this morning i'm looking for the pulsing cover on the right lower side of the engine case. That's why I was asking.

Good luck with the new motor.

That may have been the culprit.

Lets just say that if I was to have had nos than I would have had the bike tuned to the t for use. And lets say that I did do just that and when I went to spray it, it didn't work quite as it should have. Now I am not saying that that is what happened but it could have. Than yes those events could have played a major role in the issue. And again I am not trying to come off like a jack ass so sorry if I am.
