do you think this was a top end or bottom end induced failure?
I think it was maybe a rod/piston . On the bike there was no mechanical noise, it just locked going up gears. In video it almost sounds like clutch is slipping.Wont know till i get it back.
I dont know what bikes like yet. But the guy looking aftercit at the track said it didnt look too bad. He commented it was scratched down the plastics and that even the levers werent bust.
Im not expecting miracles
Apparently a big oil down :-)
Will know more when I collect, hopefully next week. It slid ftom just shortfof the 1/8 and almost made the 1/4 :-)
Sucks to hear dave! Glad you are mostly OK. From what I've seen you have awesome determination for racing with the ZX12R so I have no doubt you'll get it back up running shortly!
If its not too bad it will be back :-)
Ive quite a lot of spares so im optimistic.
Im guessing the nose ,tail and lower sides will be battle scarred so I will probably replace with race panels. I will get my fibre glass out and make a new extended tail with seat. Wanted the Catalyst one but shipping kills it , so will be a challenge.
Havent done fibre glass since I made a one piece front for my 70 Transam pro street car many years' ago :-)
Think the motor will be a full rebuild :-)
:-) Im lucky to walk away :-)
Pushed the limits again!
That oil sure is slippy :-)
Not seen bike since it spat me off so will be Interesting to see what failed and what parts weren't scraped away by the tarmac !!! :-)
