Hi, first of all, I'd like to thank you all for support with my last carb and maintenance related issue on my gsxr 750 1994 - everything worked out great and bike ran for over 1500 miles without hiccup. (good times)
Unfortunately, It fell a victim to what looks like a nasty crankshaft failure. The engine sounds like it had bag of nails in it, lost power and left smokescreen behind when the beak down happened. Long and troublesome engine disassembly confirmed that the crankshaft is simply gone...
As I'm on a relatively tight budget, I'm reaching out to you asking for an advice. What would be the best option here?
1. New second hand engine
2. New second hand crankshaft - same cost as engine if we count all gaskets and spares
3. Buying a crashed bike (bit more costly than 1 and 2 but I'm getting spares of everything) - barely possible on 22yo bike of this kind.
4. Sell everything as is and stay without a bike for God knows how long
I value your opinion. Thanks in advance
