So last summer we pitted next to a guy who blew his superbike (superbike = not factory - i.e. tuned/overbore, etc) motor on an older model SV650 and decided to just part it out instead of fixing it. I offered him some cash for the whole thing, with the intention of buying a stock motor to put in it.
And the pics of the whole deal:
The bike was painted a nice blue - but then before it dried the guy decided to put glitter all over it. Even the swingarm.
So now I'm stripping the swingarm:
Engine out, the new engine is in the create behind it:
I have a stock motor waiting to go in, and last night I tore into the blown motor to figure out what's wrong...
Piston go boom.
