this....is no bueno. :lol

long story short, after getting off the highway and sitting at a light, i thought i heard a V-twin somewhere. but oh no, it was MY bike :scared. then all of a sudden, CLACK CLACK CLACK CLACK CLACK.

after towing it home and using the secret of the forum(aka the search button) i think i have come to the conclusion that i spun a rod bearing. won't be sure till i drop the engine though. and since i will have the engine out, i'm thinking a few upgrades might be in order. so far i'm thinking some new JE pistons, port and polish, thinner head gasket, and maybe some adjustable cam sprockets. i'm pretty sure i have ruled out new cams and connecting rods after cruising some of the older threads.

any other cost effective mod suggestions i could do while the engine is out would be appreciated

From the looks of your profile, I would insure it well and stick it outside.:crash


Seriously though, sorry to hear you have this problem. Motor work can give much power so use to your benefit.

no need for sprockets.. stock ones are adjustable... they have slotted holes 2 holes from stock location.. since yamaha doesnt use sprockets for timing.. like other models, they use dots in camshafts.. u can just turn them 1/4 turn and bolt them up. pistons good idea, split stock headgasket and copper coat it... same thing as thinner gaskets that cost $100 plus. cost of this... nothing but copper coat. done 4 or 5 like this.. never had problem. good luck with fixing it.
