Default Blown motor?

Rawrrrr I'm ****ed.

Speeding up to get on the highway.. 10k rpm.. shifted gears... then all of a sudden I hear clunking noises so I clutch in and go to a stop on the side of the highway.

Lost oil... tried to see if bike would at least turn over with the starter but it won't. It's dark out so I can't see what if any visable damage is done.

You have to get some sort of light onto the engine and figure out what's going on. Without a visual inspection there is no way of knowing if it is simply an oil line that broke dumping your oil causing an overheat, or something busted your oil pan or if a connecting rod broke loose and exploded through the cylinder block or engine case. Get a look at it in some light and let us know what you find. If the engine didn't seize and lock up the back wheel on you, it COULD be not so bad.

damnit. So after the sun came up today I went to look at it..

Should I try to look for a replacement engine? I'm on a Island in Canada so its harder I would imagine to find a replacement ):

Is that the small end on the connecting rod that shot through the case? If so...I don't envy you. That's crazy.
90% of motorcycle forum members do not have a service manual for their bike.

This blows.. Only got to ride it for 2 and a half tanks.

And this also sucks having to have 50 posts to post into the WTB section.

Someone have a post-98 engine forsale?
