Something broke, oil light on
Hello all, yesterday I was stopped at a light after a few hours of riding with no issues. Then suddenly the RPM's slow and the and the bike stalls. I try to restart, and it cranks slowly for a second then no movement. Then the oil light comes on and starts blinking angrily at me.
So I push the poor thing home. Drain the oil, some metal shavings, but nothing out of the ordinary, so I pull the oil pan off. I find three chunks of metal that appear to be a small sleeve possibly. Probably no bigger then 3mm in diameter if all the pieces were there.
My first thought was oil pump or, pump chain/sprocket. I pull the oil pump off, and its flawless.
So, does anyone have any ideas of things I could check before having to find someone to take the engine completely appart?
This is an 03 RC51. Fortunately he engine is not siezed, as I was able to spin it by hand
thanks for any input
