what a cool hack for a short roadbike ride through the pourin rain.

glad to have had a little more sophisticated rainstoppers today though.

Fuck.

Glad i did one more check before putting the motor back together.

yeah, that's bad.

Cylinder, fortunately, will probably be OK with some acid and a hone
through it.

My guess is it would have gone one, possibly two rides before *kboom*
and taking the cylinder, head, con rod, and bottom end out with it.

whew. thats bad.

I guess it would have lost compression before it broke in half totaly?

but scary that it continued on the other side of the slot, which one could probably take in account as proof that this was broken from start and is a waranty case...

Sheesh... GM pulled the advert, of course, but only after people complained.

Ok clue me in here, as someone who has taken a sudden interest in small engines.
What's that I'm looking at? Is that the cylinder itself or the case?

yes, the cylinder itself I guess.

the brown thing is the piston.

That's the piston in the cylinder/crankcase. Peeking in through the
intake where the reeds live (it's a 2-stroke engine).

The brown thing is the connecting rod ("con-rod"), piston attaches to
the con rod with a wrist pin, then the other end is attached to the
crank.
The little circle thing right below the crack is one of the injectors.

Pistons shouldn't have cracks in them.

Pull the cylinder off, this is the piston:
http://wildcat.homeunix.net/sled/DSC08457.jpg
connecting rod/wrist pin visible through the hole in the piston for the
injector.

Looking through the cylinder:
http://wildcat.homeunix.net/sled/DSC08465.jpg
Fortunately I was able to hone most of that out.
The hole in the transfer port in the back is the other upper injector.
Black part on the bottom is the steel "base gasket".
The holes/ports in the cylinder wall are the transfer ports, fuel is
injected into the
crankcase by the injectors, as the piston cycles it
pulls in the air/fuel mix from teh crankcase into the cylinder where
it's then compressed and ignited with a spark plug in the head.
( http://wildcat.homeunix.net/sled/2011_Rebuild/DSC08414.jpg :
red part on top is the head, spark plugs stick out the top of that...
from top to bottom, the blue masked off ports are the exhaust valves,
exhaust, and air intake. Oil injector pump is that thing with all the
tubes off it at the bottom. Black hose between the cylinders is the
crankcase bearing oil line. Coolant line/thermostat is the big port on
the middle of the head.)

High of 12°F/-11°C tomorrow.
Oil change on the bike is complete.
Grip warmers will be nice. :D

...like smashing through a stack of snow at that speed and continuing his way down...

or... darting into an ice skate tunnel and popping out again at the end continuing his flight...

37degF out on the ride home today.
Lady next to me was looking at me... then she does this
bundle-up-shiveriing motion. LOL.
No, it's above freezing, not cold at all. What are you talking about?
See the jacket and helmet? The red indicator for my heated grips? I'm
probably warmer right now than you are in your cage.

You have a helmet cam running on every ride?
