Default Re: Toasted engine!

No crash, nothing spectacular at all... I heard a metallic ticking sound for about a half mile before it died, then it started losing power real fast, so I pulled the clutch & the engine just stopped dead with a clunk! then I coasted to the side of the road.

I wasn't suprised that it died... A few weeks before I converted the bike into a board tracker, the engine started running way faster than it ever had in it's life, & I think the old engine just couldn't handle those extra high revs!!
