So... Any thoughts or hints of what should we take care in order to make sure that the engines does not destroy itself again ?
640 Armageddon,

Start a separate thread.
Post your pictures, show the damage, ask the questions.

sorry guys. after all the fiasco with my LC4, i finally had to do something to get my fix. some might say this was a bit extreme, but im pretty happy!

my brand new 2012 KTM 990R. only has 24 miles, all of which i put on it. gonna do a shake down run today so we can formally "introduce" each other and get some real miles put on.

Laramie,

Congrats on the new bike, it's amazing how well the 990 handles off road for such a heavy bike.

Yeah, yeah, yeah, I'm starting to get greyed out, have both knees rebuilt so far, but hopefully won't see a walking stick at my side for another 30 years or so.

Still have that '07 BTW
