Got this miserable lump of shit out of the CX500. Got the rear cover pulled off and found the timing chain guide intact which was a bummer because that would have been a $20 fix. Instead I found large chunks of copper bearing material in the bottom of the rear cover area. So... yeah. Fuck-ass thief spun the shit out of a bearing and this engine isn’t worth saving. GOOD THING YOU CAN FINANCE USED ENGINES WITH PAYPAL THESE DAYS I GUESS.


Bonus pic of Ninja 250 and Syclone in my buddy’s new shop. I have the honor of being the first shitheel (of many, I’m sure) to leak oil onto the floor.
