I tore down my inoperable 650C on a whim. It hadn't been running for about a year due to a blown head gasket and quite a bit of metal in the oil pan. Turns out most of the right connecting rod bearing made its way into the left cylinder head/piston. Other than that issue, most of the parts are in decent condition. I will be photographing and posting the parts over the next few days. I am interested in selling the parts that are in fair condition and may just give away other parts for the cost of shipping if anyone can find a use for them. Let me know if you are looking for anything specific. I am parting out the ENTIRE bike.

I have no idea how, but all the rings were intact (and actually in pretty good shape) and the crank bearing on the right side was in pieces with only about half the material left. kZ1Iut5.jpg
Here is what the piston looked like when I pulled off the head. 8cGlFr3.jpg

wow... that sucks. This must have been some small piece of steal that came in through either the intake or through the spark plug hole. Or was it maybe the grounding Electrode that fell off the spark plug and into the cylinder??? Does the plug still have the electrode attached to it on the bottom??? What ever it was created a constant hammering that was probably entirely responsible for the bearing being blown apart and the head gasket being hammered apart from the piston hammering the head with that little piece of steel.

You should probably thank you lucky stars that it didn't instantly seize the motor, lock up the rear wheel and try to kill you. ;)

that ate something thru the intake maybe a choke screw/butterfly or somethoing thru the air box or a spark[plug tip

the bearing is pounded to hell but all there

what happened is the object in the cylinder forced the rod down to far and scrubbed the rod bearing against the crank

once the bearing was galled the rest was just time everytime the psiton hit the object it crowded the rod against the crank (and KNOCKED)\

Yes! It popped when I was engine braking on the exit ramp to my place. Ended up coasting thru a couple lights and only had to push her about three block to get home. Could have been so much worse.

How does $15 for holder and $10 for the pipe sound? There is one other guy interested in the water pipe.
Yes that sounds ok. Could you find out how much shipping will be, (I'm in the UK). The cheapest method will do, I'm not in a rush for the parts.
The cheapest I can see is USPS First-Class Package International Service at $23.40
I don't know if you can do any better, if not that will be OK.
