Grenading engines

Agree. We'll just have to wait and see what happens. One thing to consider is that our sample population is pretty small, so a relatively small number of identical failures from a similar...

grenading engines

Hello NSU. As best I can tell from the limited information available is that there was a problem with the cranks of the early units, which seems to be corroborated by Strelok's most recent post.

grenading engines

Yes, we all know that you think that Strelok (and a many others) are technically impaired and that you are correct.

Yeah, I'm very technically savy, but I really don't understand why you are so...

Yes, you probably would. But please consider this. Would you accept this level of issue from a car you bought? I suspect not. Why the difference? If you had been one of those M3 owners whose engines...

Grenading bottom ends, what to do?

Yeah, standard manufacturer stuff, but it doesn't work if the user community is organized. Check out what the BMW M3 community did that forced BMW to fix the problem:

grenading bottom ends

Well, I sure hope it runs for at least 200,000 more km! Please do keep the forum advised as to what happens with your bike. Let's hope that it doesn't exhibit the same 50k km behavior as the other 2...

grenading bottom ends

The hope is that this is a manufacturing/sourcing problem rather than a design problem. What's interesting here is that the failure mode for the two was just about identical. Will be interesting to...

why the engine grenaded

I doubt that anyone on this forum will be able to conclusively understand why 2 bottom ends grenaded in what appears to be an identical manner. While I was initially inclined to accept Strelok's...

engine failures

Nope, not yet, but I'm going to be pretty unhappy if the bottom end lets loose at 30k miles. How many miles on yours so far?

civility on the CBR forum

Mike, my comment wasn't aimed at just you. It's not that the information being provided isn't useful or even well-intentioned, it's the nastiness I've seen during just the short time I've...

Thanks for the info Strelok, and best of luck with your "new"engine. I hope that there was a manufacturing/design problem with the original crank that was fixed with the new crank....and that the new...

Likely the case, but it will be interesting to see if they were built around the same time, from the same batch of parts.

Hey Strelok and BotakSido, what year/month were your bikes made? It would be interesting to see if they were manufactured around the same time..

thx,

30k mile engine life

Hello Mike. The fact is that the bottom end gave up, and assuming you are correct, that it wasn't due to a latent manufacturing defect, this would seem to be all the more reason to accept that these...

engine breaking

Yup, I think IR has it right. Those who think you can ride these things flat out indefinitely and expect the bikes to run forever are probably somewhat delusional.

Very reasonable parts cost. How many hours do you think the entire repair will take?
