What's up guys! Been a while since I posted so I wanted to catch up and show you guys what I have been up to.
So like I posted in my other thread I bought a second GS450E. The po stated the bike had lost some power and that he just parked it after that. I picked it up for 150.00 so I wasn't really CO corned with the condition of the motor. I was thinking that it may have just jumped timing.
The day I picked it up.
So after I got it home I started checking things out. I did a compression test and both cylinders were very low. 90psi a side. I put new plugs in it and checked the oil and dropped a new battery in it. Primed it and it started right up. There was some slight tapping from the bottom end but it cleared up after a second. I had the bike running for 5-10 mins and then boom. The engine came to an abrupt stop. No dice. Tried to crank it and that bad boy was locked up tight..
So I got started tearing it apart.
Oh boy.. glitter fest in the oil filter.
Pulled the oil pan and found this....
Needless to say the motor is a total loss.
Time to start the search for the new motor...
