Another R6 with a hole because of a broken chain.

Alright well I fell victim to the previous owners shit maintenance with their chain and now have a lovely hole in the motor. Seems the general consensus is to split the cases and have it welded. I'm relatively mechanically inclined so I think I can do it. I already downloaded a service manual, any other tips anyone can offer? Seems like this is the most active R6 forum I've seen.

I'll probably use this thread to document the process and for my own sanity.

wow man, thats really shitty, I think your best bet is what others have aid, just take apart and have it welded back.

Good luck.

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

Its easy to blame other people when shit happens. How long did you have the bike before it happened. Chain looks really dirty, even the swingarm bolt looks rusted. If you bought the bike like that you should've done some maintenance on it. Clean the bike, adjust chain, even change it if the bike is older and have some miles on it

Oh I do take some accountability, I had it only for a year, I should have just replaced the chain from the jump. As far as cleaning/lubing/adjusting goes I had it adjusted pretty well, and lube it once a week. The rust you see isn't from the bike itself, it's from the steel crash cage that was on it. I know the previous owner isn't totally at fault, I take responsibility for my **** ups. But the previous owner wasn't exactly a mechanical genius, the first thread I ever posted on here was when I was blowing wheel bearings because the previous owner had removed the axle spacer tube.

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

I tend do go thru the hole bike when i buy a used one. Motorcycle is dangerous as it is, and i dont trust maintenance done by other people. For my own piece of mind, i like to redo all

They made them for 3rd gens, but the only ones that were made to fit a 2nd gen were for the mini car guys, and the counter shaft sprocket had to be a 14 tooth for it to fit. Which sucks because it was the 2nd gen that had issues with keeping sprocket nuts on, so that is the model that needed it....
