Same kind of motor, but definately from two different bikes. The crankcase cover (clutch cover?) is solid black on the one still attached to the bike, but the one on the motor stand has a two-tone cover.BMWHP said:Hmmmm, those are two different bikes. Look at the punched out portion of the lower cyl. The holes are different shapes.
Dude, take a close look at the engine case damage, as in the actual hole created. In the first hole, it is right down to the seam where the upper and lower casings meet. In the 2nd, the hole is much smaller with the hole only being in the upper case.xlr8r said:They are the same motor.
If you look very carefully, you can find identical stain/watermarks on the cases. I can't explain the appearance of the black/polished end cap with the hex bolt. Possibly the angle of the photo and the effect of the camera flash.
The point is, since this is the same engine, it probably is a single failure rather than the start of a pattern of failure in this motor.
Yep. Agreed; pics of 2 different engines.krider12s said:the hole in on the bike is almost round and the rod bolt is missing. on the stand the hole is not as wide and is almost square at the top. also the rod bolt is missing on the in the bike and is broken but still in the rod on the on the stand.
