Frame/engine bolt snapped off

Recommended Posts

I got into a pretty bad wreck recently.  Locked up my front tire and went down.

The frame on the left side snapped where it connects to the engine.  It also broke the bolt away from the engine case.  I've uploaded pictures.

If I wanted to part the bike out, is the engine salvageable with this damage?  I'm guessing not but wanted to ask anyways.

It can be welded or head replaced.

That is exact reason I am not big fan of frame sliders, they can do more harm than good sometime.

Nope

That gusset still attached to the threads is a piece of the motor and a structural part of the bike

Internals and unscratched parts of the motor could probably be parted out, but the motor itself is unlikely to be repairable/weldable as the motor casing is sintered

 


ATGATT... ATTATT, two acronyms I live by.
