Looks a little dirty there.

I broke a chain about 5 miles into Poison Spider last year. Fortunately, a jeep towed me back. What a pain in the butt. I always keep an extra master link on me for this sort of thing.

Although, you were pretty much screwed. :thumbsup:

Timo, I just did the same thing. But I was riding in a real deep rut as I was climbing a hill, my BPR chain guide bent in from the rut causing my chain to derail. The chain flew and landed on my shift lever , bending my shift shaft. Did you bend your shift shaft?

Dan,

Yes it did :thumbsup: luckily that seal is not leaking so I just bended my gearshifter in a wise to match :bonk: It was a deep snow groove and think rear sproket just hit a tree stump or a rock hiding in that corner inside snow.

I'm designing a bit better shield for the block and for that gearshifter. Pictures will follow. :thumbsup:

Well anyway I'm taking my engine in parts in two weeks time, it has 114 hrs on it already and I have 3 day race (600miles) coming up on end off this month.

Timo

Looks like a good thing you had the case guard on still. I broke my stock chain a few months ago. Long story but I had it too tight. Landed a jump, broke it in Ten (10) places. Only good thing was it just fell off, didnt hurt a damn thing. My bro rode back to the truck and got a tow rope and towed me back. I went back to town got a new chain and was back out riding in two hours. :thumbsup::thumbsup:
