    Blown Final Drive

    If it wasn't for bad luck, I'd have none at all. Out riding a few days ago. Cruising about 40mph or so and I hear this loud ratcheting sound followed by a clank.

    Sick Vmax - Blown engine?

    I was in second to last gear and passed a truck at maybe 70 MPH tops never noticed the tach as I was up and down so fast , I continued to ride about 20 miles and started to notice a lack of power and the exhaust sounded way different. I pulled into a gas station and noticed the bike could barely...

    Blown up tranny????

    Well, I think I finally did it. After finishing my new clutch and double D mod the bike ran and shifted perfectly, I put about 150 miles on it since Friday and no problems other than I'm really not getting used to the lever effort like I though I would. Normal riding was fine but trying to...
