    When I put my HDB handguards on I did have to go with a longer clutch cable, however I think mine is higher up since I put on a Scotts submount damper. One thing to watch out for though is the choke cable was a little too short and when I made a sharp turn, the rpm's increased (I ended up just disconnecting it since I never use it).

    I got together with a bunch of friends and we had a 1.1 mile road course layed out on the ice. Homemade tires were hooking up real good, on the 6th lap I came out of the last turn in 3rd, twisted the throttle and BAM!

    I guess I need to decide what to do with the bike now. Can't wait to see what this is gonna cost.:huh

    You might clean it up a bit, open up the cracks some (for more bonding surface) and try JB weld. What have you got to lose? Seems low risk to me. As long as there is enough support for the clutch shaft. Then see if you can put a clutch case saver on it so as to not pressure test the JB Weld repair.

    $1,600 in parts, and 17-20 hours of labor.

    ask me how I know!

    Great, thanks for the info!

    I'm eyeing that hydraulic clutch too from Old Texan's thread. Any word on price?

    Mate!!!! FKN SPEWIN!!!!

    I just want to say thank you for posting that! That must be devistating. Like me, you have probably looked at case savers and thought "I'll have to get one of them one day" Then BANG!!! I can imagine the violent thoughts that went through your mind as you stared at that gaping hole. :splat

    I just ordered my Billet case saver.......

    Just an update folks. I finally had a chance to sort through my junk mail, and a message from Paul at HDB had been sitting in there for two days, so he had gotten back to me right away, and is shipping the replacement post haste.

    Marks for customer service...:thumb

    Ouch - sorry to see the damage to your crankcase. Just curious, what brand of chain was that on there? My original chain (CZ I think) snapped like that after only 4,000 miles.

    Mine has 3844 miles...

    Funny thing is I ordered new chain and sprockets last week.


    I think it's stamped CZ also.

    Be interesting to see if the factory put the same POS chain on the TE630. I have seen multiple reports now of very early chain failures with the stock CZ unit. Anyone out there still on the original chain... consider yourself warned.

    Yup,,, I knew I was on borrowed time. Especially with racing the bike and the high stress of ice riding. :nono

    Hmm, looks like I have two stock chains to weld into spiders or some other yard art............

    I'm looking to make my own solution that, like many other types of case savers, incorporates the upper chain roller mount. I don't think the mount points on the case will necessarily hold in a chain break situation. On the other hand broken mount points are still better than a fragged clutch actuator housing.

    I think it's about $300, but to put that in perspective, I broke my stock cable, so I had to buy a new one and a spare and that was like 150. $300 "fixes" the issue.

    Sorry you guys had trouble.

    I will sacrifice the small plastic chain cover in order to protect the case.

    Just a couple of thoughts.


    I replace stock chains on all bikes at first oil change.

    I replace good chains around 2,000 - 3,000 miles.

    Call it silly, I've never had a chain related failure. I carry extra master links primarily for other people.

    Again, sorry you guys had the problem.

    Since we're talking chains, I just replaced the inner plastic guide on the bottom chain guide @ 5k miles.

    Then I did a 1,200 mile trip to Cabo, and the thing looks just as worn our as before. putting a few gouges in the Aluminium

    How often do you guys change that? Or do you leave it kinda worn away at front?

    Hey Debandi - have you tried that casesaver with a 16T sprocket? Wondering about clearances.

    No sir. I'm running a 15t. On #3 on the front sprocket.

    It's a very tight fit with the 15t.
