Won’t fit the ‘fix’ to a bike that hasn’t gone bang?
Never heard so much fucking bollocks in my life.
Everything and anything can be replaced, especially if it hasn’t actually broken yet!
Cunt.

He was a bit of a cunt to be honest...... but what he was saying was that enough of the gear teeth will already be floating in the engine causing damage that replacing it with the improved version won’t undo the damage already done and won’t stop ultimate failure.

At least he wasn’t scaremongering and angling for work.

Smells and sounds like bullshit (Buellshit ?) -- of course its fixable - if parts are "worn to the point of being filings the majority will be in the oil" -- drain it and check ..

Big bits should sit in the sump at the oil pickup, little bits should be caught in the oil filter. Anything that does damage in the gearbox or bottom end can be replaced, but the top end should be clean as the filter should protect it. If I loved the bike I would do some investigating before flogging it or buying another engine. Maybe just a small batch of gears that failed. He will only see the failures, not all the ones that are still going strong

Have you sought advice on how common this could be on a Buell forum ?

I can only add that I can at least sympathise with the mindset and the umming and ahhing about it.

My Explorer recently went in to Triumph for 3 weeks and needed £1050 of gearbox work on a bike with less than 12,000miles on it. Before I put it in I considered selling, considered leaving it as the problem is so intermittent but eventually it put me off riding the damn thing.

None of the above helps you I'm afraid. But as others have said I can't imagine the engine is beyond repair or not worth fixing. If it means alot to you then it IS worth fixing despite what cunty mccuntface said.

Also, if it's such a well known issue, this guy can't be the only one aware of it with valuable info.

People there were in agreement and apparently there's plenty of info on the forum....... we all had a laugh about it (me).

Don't worry though kids, it's all tongue in cheek....... it was supposed to be a bit of a funny story, but I didn't tell it very well...... what a cunt.

You wouldn't believe some of the damage I've witnessed over the years due to my connection with Phil .. the state of some engines that arrive you can only assume they are fit for the bin.  However the vast majority are fully rebuild-able - even those with more of the moving bits outside the cases than in !

I have just put a grand into the engine of my DR350 which only cost me £1300 to start with.

Fact of the matter is I could not buy another bike with any guarantee of less problems for the same money and it does everything I need it to and makes me smile.

I will get a new bike eventually but I will keep the DR.

Is that meant to be engine oil or the mold for a chocolate cake?

Decided to stick the blighter on eBay, soon ran up to 3.3k which is more than I paid for it 7 years ago.

Needs to be replaced with something similarly interesting and cheap...... Original Speed Triple I’m thinking. I’ve always wanted one.

Really? That’s a shame.

I approve of a Speed though. I suspect good ones are thin on the ground now?
