Default Went down today :P (pics) looking for advice for repair

Unfortunately on my trip back to Houston from Austin I got caught up in a really bad storm that wasn't ending anytime soon. I was going straight in my lane down the highway when my front wheel hit an area where I guess water stuck (not the best road) and it immediately caused me to lowside and slide out as if I road onto ice. I was fortunate to walk away with minor bruises and scraps. A few of the things I know to be broke are the clutch lever, shift pedal, my slider ripped out of the frame, and there is a huge hole in the left side of my crankcase which I am most worried about. It's still raining but the bike is outside under some cover. I don't know if I should cover up the crank case to keep contaminates from getting in or what to do? How hard is this going to be to fix?

Your stator cover and stator are trashed. But I can't tell from the pictures if your case is damaged or not.

You need to strip the fairings off and get rid of the debris that's still in those pictures. Then you need to get the stator cover off - it's magnetized, so be careful.

Then you need to determine if the edge of the actual case is still perfectly intact. The flywheel needs to be straight. And you need to make sure that there isn't any kind of gravel or pieces of the stator cover that are in the engine.

Oh and as far as weather and everything, you need to make sure that more debris and water doesn't get into it. Basically, anything that gets into the oil and you don't flush out with get pulled all through your motor. Through all of the bearings, your top end, your transmission, your oil jets, etc. So you need to limit what gets in there so you have a better chance of flushing it all out.

And you need to make sure that not a lot of water gets in there. Rods, crank, and parts of the transmission are steel - you don't want it to rust.

I had to open up Flickr - I don't know how to embed them.

He needs to link the BBC code. We could help him out and fix it, but his links are set to private.

Ah, okay - that makes sense. I tried fixing it - but I couldn't figure out why I couldn't get the right code.


FatCat - you'll need to take some up close pictures of the engine case once you get the stator cover off.

The case looks to be damaged. :-( Looking at the pic, the area where threads for the fasteners to hold the case cover are missing.

definitely, going to need to source a new engine or find that half of the case on ebay and rebuild the engine.
