This is why I like working at 5thgear . This week we managed to blow 4 CBR 900 engines on the stuntbikes. This may seem wreckless to some, but it's actually a good learning experience . Stuntbikes are a whole new world of set up compared to racebikes . The factories haven't tested them like this yet . It's cool building different 12 bars , crash cages , streetfighters , changing gearing , reversing oil pickups for doing wheelies and then testing it.
There's not another shop around that does this stuff. It's invaluable to know what sounds an engine makes before it pukes it's self . How else do you know what an engines really doing unless you've put it to it's limit.
We'll be doing a photo by photo lay out of the rebuilding so that others can see what's involved. Here's what they look like for now. What your looking at is a con rod that broke and went threw the case.
