this little damage here.

You can actually see one of the teeth that did not break off.

The silver wheel that you can see in the hole on the cover is the timing rotor.

It has about 30 teeth on it. During my accident about 23 teeth broke off flying into the timing chain which is located right behind the gear.

The timing chain carried the teeth up to the top of the motor.

Now my whole motor has to be taken apart.

If Kawi had put a scatter sheild behind this gear I would be riding my bike already. There is no reason why the gear has to be next to the timing chain without any measures to prevent the teeth from getting into the chain.

Anyway...
