Hey Leroy,
Are the guards metal or plastic?
Like the rear lights, fit in real nice.
You will be finished I hope.

Shit bad luck Leroy,
but lets remember that it is only a bike,
there is many, many worse things that can happen in life

I don't know to much about motors, are you able to fix it yourself ? or do you have to get it rebuild or another motor, is that easier?

And hey at least you got to ride it, even if it was for a very, very short time

Leroy, do you think the anchor points in the engine really broke off to allow the chain to break? That seems like a very strange failure mode. Maybe something else bound up which caused those to shear off due to the stress instead?

I dunno. It's gonna be hard to say. Just my thought from the outside looking in. Good luck, boss.

I'm ready to buy an other engine right now. I really want to throw an 600cc to this frame but the paperwork it has to be done makes me to pass it. I have to go to the welder at Thursday and see if he can fix it. I have a piece of what is broken and the rest have to build it

I suppose that all the damage came from the timing chain tensioner. The chain was on big pressure. It broke, the piston hit the exhaust valves. After that the crank rotate the broken chain and the chain hit the chain sliders mount.

I would like to hear and other's opinion about that
