Nope no loss of power, oil was just changed, coolant was topped right up. And the noise sounded like tic tic snap and then it was real quiet except for the metal falling into my skid plate and all the bikes I passed doing back by me. accompanied with silence. And now signs of the cash register ringing. I'll keep you posted.

Wow....,

it looks like you snapped a rod. Luckily, no parts flew in any direction that would have hurt you.

I cannot imagine anything that you could have done, not even riding with no oil, that would have caused this.

Thanks for the pics. Its educational for all of us.

that picture is almost identical to what my case looked like when my 426 grenaded last fall. the inside is just as ugly. the rod broke in the same place too. also took out the crank, a couple shift forks, the skirt on the cylinder, the cylinder and a couple valvesand a few other things. everything adds up to alot of money. I feel your pain!
