one call at a time..
Ok, I bought my R1 in January 05. Well on 9/9/05 I'm riding down the interstate and piston number 4 decides it wants to give on me sending a rod through my block; which [email protected]#$ed up a lot sh#$. My bike is covered under warranty and yamaha will cover the damages. But here's the thing. Yamaha stopped making 05 engines mid-way through the year and now they are forced to order all new parts for my bike and rebuild my engine. The only thing that is going to be left from the original motor is my transmission. My gears are still good. But I don't like the fact that I'm basically getting a rebuilt motor. But when I think about it, it IS a new motor. I'll have to do all the services all over again which sucks because when the motor went on me I had 11,600 miles on it. My problem is I won't trust the motor in my bike when I get it back. Has anyone ever had this happen to them and how did their motor hold up after being replaced with all new parts? This really pisses me off because I bought this bike brand new and the whole reason in buying brand new was to avoid this crap that you would get from buying used shiat. Anyway everyones advice and opinions are welcome, thanx...
