The rest of the story would be cool, now that we have gotten over the shock. Looks like real low miles/hours, has all the little dress up of someone that was really into his bike, chasing a street bike in the twisties? Just breaking the bike in? Holding high RPM on a new bike? What oil was he running, was it motard, hard, off and on again, street?

Hey I thought these PIGs were supposed to be reliable. I wouldn't have thought that was even possible to do to an engine. He should get some kind of medal or something.

Nice pics, So why don't you just provide a quick brief as to what happened? If it's a long story and you don't have the time to write out all the details, a brief statement would be sufficient. ie. extended high revs or oil pump went out or tried some after market part. Something like that would work.

Just my 2 cents.

Might actually prevent someone else from having the same issue.

Oh noes!
I love how "Made in Japan" is proudly stamped on the smashed rod.
