1098 bottom end bites the dust.

Started the bike to go ride, and heard a horrible noise from the motor. Shut it down and took it into my mechanic. Looks like the rod bearing crapped the bed. SO BUMMED! Brass bits in the oil.

After a bit of investigating, seems like maybe Fox Performance are the guys to repair the crank and rods? Just trying to figure out the best path forward here. I am not a mechanic. Maybe used motor, but dont want to run into the same thing again down the road. I LOVE my bike.

9000 miles, WTF! Ride it hard, but didn't expect this. Always serviced.

UGGG.......

That sucks man. Sorry for your troubles.

Hopefully after its fixed and you crank on that throttle all bad memories will disappear!

Good luck and definitely keep us posted as to how you go about fixing it.

Sorry to hear, man. On the positive side you probably were lucky it didn't happen while riding hard.
Speedy recovery for your Duc!

Do some more research. Plenty of thorough threads here about the 1098 conrod bearing dying, repair, and engine swap. Fox will fix your engine for roughly $900 assuming you can tear down and deliver yourself. Maintenance to have some else remove your engine will be $$$. If you want to beef up components to ensure this doesn't happen again, you're looking at another $1k. Swap with another 1098 and you've got slightly more around $2500 plus the risk of a repeat failure. Or you can swap with the more reliable 1198 plus exhaust (bigger exhaust ports, 1098 base and S exhausts won't fit) for around $3500. The latter is what I did. But as I said in the beginning, do more research so you can make an educated decision. Tons of info here

Not that catastrophic. Mine blew on track and all I felt was a slight loss of thrust and big change in sound. Then again I suppose if I didn't stop right away that the engine could have grenaded itself...

Unlucky OP. Been there. But it doesn't have to be the end of your Duc

Thanks Random,
Ive read all the posts, talked to Fox, and searched all of ebay. I dont think that a used 1098 motor is the way to go. Cant really find any good 1198 motors. One on ebay for 4500.

Mechanic has the motor out, and cases split, so it looks like Fox Performance is the way for me to go. Im trying to decide weather or not I should do any Crank work while its there.

Im thinking this is the way to go at Fox Performance:

Crank journal repair $450
Crank balance 449
Rod repair $150
Con rod bearings $336
Arp con rod bolts $156
Flywheel lightning 100.00
Clutch venting 75.00
Stock repair total: 1716.00

Thanks

Brian

Looks like you've got a good plan there. If I hadn't lucked out with an 1198 motor from a member here I probably would've done the same

I just talked to the guy from Craigslist and he said engine is 110% good and ready to go. If needed I could swing by one day when I'm over that way and take a look at it and let you know. Just inbox me and let me know what you are thinking.

Well, looks like I'm the proud owner of a 2013 Streetfighter S 1098 motor with 3400 miles Lets hope it fits.......

After reading a bit about it, I may have to change the exhaust. Anyone have any experience?

Pretty sure all base and S 1098 engines are the same. The R has larger exhaust ports, basically an 1198. Someone correct me if I'm wrong

Yeah this is odd. "This one is ready to go! Out of a 2013 bike, like new, 3400 or little more miles on it". That's what he told me when I asked him of what year it was.
