16k and The Cases are Split

So a week ago I leave on a little ride ~ at less than 16k I have a knock in the bottom end ~ check the compensator ~ chain ~ all good here. Take it to the boutique and the bottom end is the culprit ~ crank pin or rod bearings ~ I can tell you reassambly will include Timken Bearing conversion, Lefty Bearing, Crank Trued, plugged, welded.... Downside is I won't be riding for a month or so ~ upside is that a more dependable platform when complete.... The bike is less than six months old and I understand these things happen just a little frustrating.

I assume the work is being done under warranty with you just paying for the extra parts?

Going to make sure that all products goin back in are a step up from the stock build ~ Goin with Darkhorse crankworks crank, gonna bore to 113 and do the cp pistons/rings ~ Whole bottom will be new except the cases. Just will be going nuts with the wait...

Looks like your paying to have the work done, why not go bigger than 113, the cost won't be much different.

What are you going to do with the old parts? I'm sure you're not going that far and put the 259s back in.

Goin with the Woods 777's ~ I'll check on the 259e's ~ thinkin there may have been some metal in the bottom end ~ I'm going with a darkhorse crankworks crank/flywheel (SE trued, welded, plugged and balanced for the 113" C&P Pistons. Feuling Camplate/Oil Pump/Zippers cam chain tensioners/ woods 777's, boring the jugs and a set of worked heads ~ should be a good solid motor puttin out 120+Hp and 125+TQ ~ I just want a solid platform to go with the Baker DD7 ~ I'll let ya know on the cams...

I could go bigger but in my small brain ~ the bigger I go the more stuff I can break ~ my goal is 100k motor (2-2.5 years for me) ~ Just want a nice mix of power & dependability ~ This thinking may be wrong but I would be happy if I am at 120+hp and 125+tq ~ So you are probaly right dbel ~ but I'm already headed down the path and hope to do some ridin with ya in South FL ~ SemperFi
