Linear curve, right to 7500! Now its time to ride it in anger for a bit and make sure everything is good!
Those are good numbers. Crankshaft what year is this bike, 2012 with an actual 690 cc or earlier with 654 cc?

09 654cc

AFR is 13 across the board and I'm running it in open loop for now to make sure the fueling is good. Don't forget, 61 was with the insert still in the exhaust.

You are not paying any of that shit for a shipment under $1000, at least not if it's mailed.

€220 is $285, shipping should be about $30 or so. I'd definitely prefer a proven piston designed by Emil Grossewächter (he is good and has a lot of experience with 690s) and manufactured by CP over a JE experiment....

Thanks for the info Lukas, I agree. That price isn't bad actually and I tend to get stuff from Europe faster than I do from California

I had my bike on the bench with new TKC 80 on the rear. Just for fun basically.
Mods: Only acra + insert.

Background is that I ran out of gas a few days before and had a filthy injector that made the bike jerky.

I had the same trouble on my '11. I caught it a little earlier than yours. Toward the end my bearing had 3-4mm play!

I'd doubt there is any damage down below - it doesn't look like your bearing fell apart. I'd dump the oil & inspect for metallic bits. I'd then flush it a few times & ride it.

i am some what mechanically inclined so i set to work.. to try to see what the hell had happened..

I was quite sure that this was a valve issue. took off the head to reveal a super f**ked Valve Rocker Bearing that has stripped it’s self and seized.. also damaging the Valve Cams too..

As i can tell there dos not appear to be any other damage done to any other parts..

my questions for anyone who can help is would this have done any other damage to the motor... i.e. the piston, cylinder etc... this is not an easy thing too tear down to check..

and other than ordering a new Rocker Arm and Valve Cam what else does anybody recomend i should replace with these..


many thanks

James

No prob. If you do order something make sure they ship DHL (they handle the German Postal service for parcels), this will cost a fraction of the other options and should get delivered by USPS in the States so there won't be any brokerage fees or other BS charges.

I can translate to ze Germans if needed.

The bride got scared I presume ... Each and every webpages cached on Google shows the same error. Their entire website is down. We'll have to try later this week I guess ...

While it's tempting, think I'm just gonna stick with the stock bore. Just picked up a Gixxer 600 for my go fast demons.
