Chain broke crankcase hole

8 posts in this topic

Depends on the complexity of the repair. The case can certainly be welded easily enough, but what kills the deal sometimes is how much machine work is involved with restoring the bearing pocket, the release arm bore, and most importantly, the oil passages that feed oil to the transmission through that bore.

Next time, don't run your chain tighter than the manual tells you to.

A buddy had the same issue with his '11, a piece had broken off and somehow he managed to find it on the track. He had it welded up and it worked fine.

Thanks guys for the replies. There is no warranty on it. Its only about a inch down but half mooned the housing with a chuch off. Anyone know if a 10-11 crankcase fits?
