Damaged Case and Case Cover (CBR929)

Can this be repaired (Welding) and purchasing a new case cover?

Yes, i think so. If you find the right person to do the job.
This is a "standard" Firebladeproblem when crashing on the left side of the bike. Very common problem if your using your bike on the track. At least here i Sweden.

Re: Damaged Case and Case Cover (CBR929)

Wow the case looks pretty bad, I replaced mine a couple months ago too but it only had a small hariline crack on the bottom which was leaking oil, nothing else was damaged. dunno bout welding it though. I'd buy a new cover, they are so delicate but some companies have made tougher ones but cant remember the name, just do a search and you will find it. Good luck

He's not asking about welding the cover. If you look, the engine case itself has broken away.

Sirkbac, your right. Maybe I didn't explain it well and should have provided more pics. I know the case cover can be replaced, but being as though I have the small portion of the engine case, can that be welded?

Re: Damaged Case and Case Cover (CBR929)

Ohhhh, I see! Now I get it, I looked at the 2nd pics more and ya maybe a good welding shop can weld that back together. Make sure you get good references from the shop for their work before you let them tackle it. That really looks bad though, don't mind if I ask you how it happened??? I know you probably had the bike slide on its side for awhile for it to crack like that. Engine case is aluminum right? If so it can be done but has to be done properly as i've heard of people welding cracks on aluminum cylinder heads with no troubles.

Re: Damaged Case and Case Cover (CBR929)

Thank god Iím not the only one this happened too. I skipped the welding and purchased a used motor on eBay. Local dealer quoted me 3400 to replace the crank case, fluids and gaskets. Still have the engine and can still strip if needed. I figured this was the quickest and painless way to resolve issue.

This is my friends bike. He let his cousin ride it and he dropped it. I think he said the case hit the curb.

Re: Damaged Case and Case Cover (CBR929)

****, that sucks. Hopefully it can be welded.

One way to prevent damage is here



can't keep them on at the track, because they can hit the ground at extream lean angles. But they are ok for street if you like to play around with low wheelies and other stuff. Pretty usefull..

Re: Damaged Case and Case Cover (CBR929)

I would go along these lines first before I put up the scafolding.

A stronger cover might have prevented all that damage. Depends on what hit first.

There are some who call me ............................Tim

I thought that they made them for the big CBR's also but maybe they don't.
