Flying down one of my favorite straights still on the gas in the top of 3rd gear and I hear this loud bang and my bike starts vibrating bad before I hit my braking point for a turn. I look down and the side of my bike is covered in oil. Came to a stop and all I see is hole above the clutch area. The clutch basket exploded and punched a hole in the block. Thank God none of it went into my leg. Anyone know of any options besides a new engine?

damn!!! if its just the clutch assembly and case thats damaged you could always do a slipper
it would cost more to replace the cases and swap everything over. also, you would want to pull everything apart and inspect it. do you know what caused it?

if i were in your shoes i would throw another motor in it and call it a day. much easier.
after looking again, it looks like the clutch basket let go.

yep. he is missing the clutch basket from 9 o'clock to 12 o'clock.
did ya drop the bike? looks like the frame slider is worn down as well as the rearset peg and brake lever.
Holy crap

That sucks.A new motor is in your future.I would contact Honda and see if there is a recall or something.

No,that damage was from a lowside from before,just never got new sliders. The clutchbasket did let go,Just wondering what would cause something like that. I dont stunt or drag, just ride hard.
Dang, that sucks. I'm curious what caused this. Maybe that lowside did a little damage that turned into something much bigger?
ouch.. either way.. ouch..
Weird shit like that seems to happen.

My buddy lowsided his 600. Mild crash into some gravel. His tranny blew up 2 weeks later.
I've never seen or heard of anything like that happening. Let me know what it was once you figure it out.
