3rd times a charm!
1st time -valve
2nd time -crank
3rd time -connecting rod
need a new motor
2007 zx6rWhat size?
YesWas the crank and connecting rod replaced after then initial valve failure?
If not, this can all be related to that initial instance. Piston slams into the valve slightly bending or overstressing the crank/rod. Heat cycles/stress cycles then could have caused failures in both parts, just at different times.
well let me sayI think the problem is that every time something happens to the bike, your son is on it. If it were me, he wouldnt be riding the bike after the first time he destroyed it, let alone the second and third time. thats just me though, its your money, I cant tell you what to do with it. Id get the dealer to replace the whole thing. if they wont cover it, theres a bunch on ebay, saw one the other day with super low miles on it (less than 100 I think) for like 800 or 900 bucks.

Try there they have used stuff i stumbled along it yesterday good luck
more power to ya! that makes a little more sense. if he paid for it, let him do whatever he wants with it.well let me say
I WILL and do spend most of my money for him.
(what else could be better?)
plus he purchased the bike for himself by himself
also he bought me a 07 650r
which I traded after 2 years of riding great wheelies for the 08zx14.
the 07zx6r is under a 5yr warranty so the motor repairs haven't cost anything but down time (5 months)
some costs come from
as long as he doesn't get injured
I'm happy with most everything he does
