Angry Yep I went down... have a tech question - April 26, 2006, 06:25 PM

Hey! Yeah I crashed this morning. Some dumb ass came into my lane and clipped my front. Asshole took off too. Im fine, knees are just a little beat up and bike has hopefully minimal damage. Grrr... Well check out the rest of the info and pics at http://www.myspace.com/jenny0007.

But the reason I am posting was to get some info on changing the crank case... It doesnt look hard so I was gonna try to fix tomorrow. I already figured how to get it off, but is there anything in specific that I need to do or avoid when tightening the new one up?? Not trying to fuck it up more
2002 R6

Sorry to hear that Jen. Glad you're ok and I agree woth Harvey. I rode my 954 for nearly a year with a messed up crank cover. If it aint leaking just ride it.


God Speed Jeff! You'll never be forgotten.

Damn, that sucks. Glad you are OK. Once you remove the crankcase cover you will need to spend some time and be very careful removing all of the old gasket without scratching the crankcase itself. It may be a little hard to get off as well, because of the big magnet underneath. You may also want to put some sealant around the rubber piece that the wires go through. I'd go ahead and spring for some Woodcraft covers. They will hold up better.

I just called her. I am going to fix it for her.

You all know I have the most experience fixing that year bike since my racebike was an R6 and my bike had been down more than Monica Lewinsky
