I've had my 2000 stock r6 with only a micron upgrade (silencer). was running great for the past few years i've had it. only done 20000 kph recently changed the oil and stuff, bike was running a bit rich but never thinned the oil that much. i regularly kept a eye on things. but the bike did have a slight rattle (seemed like it came from the top somewhere) when i pressed the clutch the rattle would go away so might have been a worn clutch bearing?? not other nasty noises. the bike would pick up great but i thin it lacked a bit of power on higher revs ie: above 7/8.
I was returning from work the other day and parked up at traffic and put the bike in neutral, and all of a sudden omg
i hear like something coming off or getting loose in the engine and the bike engine suddenly stops???!!
i dont know what happened never happened before. so i roll the machine off road and try firing but nothing. so i put it in 1st gear and still nothing i then put it in second and nothing but when i bumped it back and forth trying to free the engine (panicked and wanted it freed somhow
) then i tried to fire it over and the engine fired ( in 2nd gear and clutch in ) but it was like a continuous spin and no attempt to fire??!!. I put it back in to neutral and try and fire but nothing try it in 1st gear and nothing, so i put it back into second and its a continuous starter motor noise trying to fire the engine but the noise of the engine is liek something is loose and rattly.
Please help. I've opened the chain cover on the left and the chain is loose but not broken.
could my camshaft gear snap?
would it be something to do with my clutch or gearbox. and how could my timing go and chain get loose suddenly.
this forums great with all the experience can anyone shed some light pls
