It seems that the screens did their job,nothing around cam chains at all.
After one new rotor,one new stator,one new gen. Gasket,a couple of KTM tools,some Loctite 648,four oil changes,and a whole lot of cussing,she's back together. I hope this never happens to anyone. It cost about a grand ,all said and done. I guess I should be proud it didn't ruin the engine. I am,trust me. Check those rotor bolts soon.
Hate that it happened, happy you got away relatively clean and painless. Makes me want to tear apart my bike and at least check....
Satan's nine-fitty is back together and workin well according to Stewy.
Drif might get to ride this thing tomorrow afternoon.
Check yer freewheel rotor bolts.
just do it
uuuh....I'm about to replace my starter torque plate...
What does the conventional forum wisdom say about this...to just check the torque values (and possibly break the locktite seal) or to pull the bolts, clean and retorque with 648?
remove bolts, clean both thread surfaces throughly, reapply 648 liberally to bolts, install and torque to spec.
Thanks for the info...is the problem that these bolts were not 648'd at the factory or that the locktite starts to lose it's effectiveness after a certain amount of time?
OOH...also, it seems difficult to find 648 locally, is there a permatex equivalent?
Can get it easily on the web. This is some serious shit:eek1
Not having mine apart ever I was wondering if the gasket is one of those that must be replaced or if it will survive r&r. I realize having one I on hand is a good idea.
Can these bolts be safety wired? Haven't opened mine up yet and a quick search didn't find any pictures that would tell me. If there is room enough that the safety wire wouldn't interfere with anything I'd buy a set of bolts and have them drilled for wire and replace the existing bolts. With locktite 648 and safety wire there'd be no worries. Has anybody done this?
Usually the gasket will survive, but replacing is the best option to ensure no leaks.
I have not seen it done, however does not mean it cannot be done.... its a very tight fit, so the safety wire would have be very neat and tight to the flywheel, possibly bonded to the flywheel with adhesive of some-sort... otherwise the same thing would happen as if the bolts came out; contact with alternator windings=distruction
Web source for 648 10ml bottle ~$17
Thanks for the tips, H2W!
I did a search and found that Permatex sleeve retainer is a similar product and possibly easier to find locally.
These stator bolts is a cell known issue on V-twin aprilias and we use locktite together with hole punching the side of these bolts, to prevent any movement
McMaster Carr's got it. I ordered a bottle for SStewart and I one day, had it the next.
Not sure why everyone is convinced it's so hard to get?
FWIW...I just did this tonight on my 2006. I took one bolt out and it was definitely 648'd. I decided to not bother the rest of the bolts and re-648 the one I took out and torque down to 15 nm.
