|The result of an exhaust vale dropping off stem
on a Moto Guzzi SP1000
|It happened during my second outing with newly rebuilt 750S3. I heard this knock in the back, I thought it was the center stand bouncing back in place, then a few km later the engine cut out I had to stop.
I found then that the rear drive casting had a big hole in it and oil was all over the rear of the bike. I had happily gone around bends without realizing it!
The engine restarted after I reseated the connector on the back of the front light case, and I rode home quietly, thinking of the remarkable coincidence: my Moto Guzzi had stopped the engine as I did not realize the problem! She was paying me back of the loving attention to bring her back to life after years of neglect...
|Smallblock racer engine failure
...lifted from Anima Guzzi
|...the result of a rod failure in
V35/V50 hybrid. I'm still not certain of the root cause. I can only
that the rod had some kind of weakness at the small end!
|I am in the process of tearing the gear box apart of my 1997 1100 Sport i due to transmission noise. What I have found is pitting on alot of gears.

Cracked crankshaft, pummeled pushrods
This looks expensive.

|Shrapnel formed at a very slow rate - by being taken apart in 1982 and bought in 2005 to put right.
How can anyone do this to a Lemon?

|Some nicely shattered V10 Cam followers
|I have no explanation for this, other than the odometer was
reading 65566. 2001 V11 Sport.

|Hie ! This is how I find one of the 4 rod bolts of my 1000 S-P, I am transforming in a "sleek " caferacer -
I add that the frame was entirely rusted because sanded but never coated, the oil pump was craked, the epurator hole in the crank was completely full of still powder, so it bearings at the end of theyre life, and this bolt figured the " top sherry on the cake ".

|Broken Engine Case
| I wondered why my clutch would slip excessively but at other times not at all. The freeplay in the clutch lever would go from little to lots along with the slipping. When I opened it I found one disc had shed everything. The bike still went.

|Exploded V50 drive shaft.
I was doing about 40 mph at the time, rather than the steady 80 mph cruise I was doing about a minute earlier!
