New Member Saying Hi...

Tried to post in the "new member" section but get a stupid Syntax error???

So thought I'd say hi here (as I have an MK IndyBlade)

Bought the "Crazy Carrot" a couple of weeks back... CBR900rr Fireblade 919cc BEC with around 10k miles on the lump

Unfortunately, after a hoon around the twisties near Battle, East Sussex the gearbox decided to get out and walk!!

TBF, I had been ragging the nuts off it since I had it... The gearbox exploded & sheared one of the gear dogs in half & promptly spat it through the side of the casing leaving a hole the size of a fist!

I've just got another lump with 18k miles on it to transplant (I'll have to remember NOT to bounce it off the limiter!!)

Nice car and Welcome. I think I'm speaking on behalf of the whole locost community when I say we need to see photos of your gearbox catastrophic failure ;-)

If it ain't broken, fix it anyway (just because).

Welcome to the world of kits and get used to your car being off the road longer than it's on!
seconded for some photos, always like to see some destruction on a Friday!

Welcome aboard!

Sounds like you've been enjoying the car already.

Things go wrong with them - part of the joy of ownership.

Hope you're back on the road soon.

Ouch, great pic of an epic failure though. Hope doesn't cause too much of a ball-ache getting it fixed.

PS a bit of gaffer tape - should be fine lol

Managed to source a reasonably low mile (18k) lump (I just hope it's ok)

Had to buy an engine hoist off EvilBay too
