Nope, just did exactly what I described and shown in the photos. No need thankfully.
Let me know how the bike runs when you have everything put back together, I've seen a few people saying case should be split as the heat from welding will ruin the bearing right behind that.

Hopefully you won't have that problem 👍

Yeah i've heard similar stories too, but I also have seen people get it welded with it still on the bike and have no issues so I guess we'll see lol

Well I couldn't leave the last broken stud. Brought it to my buddy who has a MIG welder and got the one that was snapped flush out no problem. Now I can confidently put it back with no worries of exhaust leaks.

God did that feel good after 3 years. Also realized the motor was missing 3 motor mount bolts. Ordered them off fleabay and a new sprocket cover. Trying to un**** the hack job bull shit the previous owner did even though I don't plan on keeping it. New fairings, painting the tank and moving on to a dual sport once it's all done. Not going to lie, even though this project has taken far too long, it's been goddamn satisfying.

Re: Another R6 with a hole because of a broken chain.

So I finally got the chain and sprockets in. First time peening a master, went too hard the first time and cracked the pin. Luckily I bought a spare and was able to do it successfully the second time.

They definitely get the job done, but have short life spans so far I am seeing. I put a majority up around 3.5 years ago, and needed to replace a large portion of them. But for the price and how great they look, I really can't complain.

Re: Another R6 with a hole because of a broken chain.

This might be a very stupid question but what happens if the chain breaks while driving? And what can you do to prevent it? Thats something I fear because of what I think would happen.

It can do a lot of damage but most of the time it just falls out on the ground. But it can get lodged around the front sprocket and bust the engine case open. It could sling off the rear and bust the tail of the bike up or hit you. But it's a very low risk this happens.

Maintain the chain. Lube adjust and inspect it often.

Alright thanks. How often should the chain be replaced?
