My motor was worn out in about the same # of miles. If you don't break them in super soft they have a tendency to wear out quickly. I know of TE450s that have 10k+ miles on the stock motors without rebuilding, they were broken in soft.

Got 27000km's out of my 450smr and the next owner did another 10000km's last time I spoke to him. Mine wasn't broken in soft either. Don't know what the reason would be for the early failure.

On the plus side looks like a new stroke bore and TC cams will make the pain go away!!

Broken Rod. Good clean break is what I am told and it could have been worse.
2-3 weeks to get her back sucks!!!!!!!!
