Here's the bike in better times.
Current state of play. It took more than I'd imagined to tip the motor forwards for access
Amazingly, this little lot were in perfect condition. Not having a compression tester, I squirted carb cleaner down the ports and not a sign of seepage. Well pleased
Not a lot wrong down here. Good opportunity to grease out all the connectors and generally clean up.
I don't have a pic of the broken chain..... it's a cam chain and it's broken
Here's the other damage
I've ordered a job lot of sv1000 cam shafts from ebay. I'm guessing the sprockets will be compatable and £20 sounds better than the £250 odd for a brand new camshaft. I've taken both side cases off and found various shrapnel in the mesh filter on the clutch side (I sent the clutch off to sharealike whilst it was out) Several bits came out with the oil but nothing attached to the sump magnet. Everything seems clear, undamaged and free running. The cam chain tensioner and slides were pristine, no sign of wear at all. I'm planning to flush the motor out with diesel then run it on cheap oil for 100 miles or so before changing the filter and filling with better oil.
Thanks for bearing with me, any further advice would be gratefully recieved.
My name is Peter, and I ride a VStrom
