Hmmm....looks like the engine builder forgot to torque down the bolts that hold the top part of the piston to the piston skirts...rookie mistake! :D

Oil starvation...very common to pre 2007 yfz without the "oil mod".

What's this oil mod...? I've replaced a crank and rods on 2 machines here recently... I just thought the people don't take care of their stuff. Both were 05's. I might need to call em up and do the oil mod for em so they don't burn em up again. When both of em were here they were locked down.

Thanks!...that's good info. That place is cheaper on the oil pumps than where I bought mine, too.

P.S. I have a couple cranks that match your topend up there^^^ if anyone needs em..:D

If you can't get any JB weld then just use duck tape that shit will hold up to 200 mph...

Both 05's... One I think is totally fubar, bent rod, completly siezed bearing. The other, the rod just won't spin freely all the way around without sticking in one spot.


I tried duck tape... Only good to about 6500 rpm. Maybe I can get T some jbweld and we can put all these pieces together and makin a badass hillclimber!:p
