    Default 2012 fz6r pulled metal from oil pan

    so I noticed some knocking noise each time my bike was in neutral I was told to drop the oil pan and see if anything was causing it sure enough found some pieces of metal looked like it could have been from a gear or something.. wanting to know more about what it could be from and how to fix this issue im sure someone has had the same situation before and could help before i wind up paying a mechanic an arm and leg to fix it..

    No doubt that those are gear teeth. No way to know exactly what has failed and the amount of damage done until the engine is disassembled.

    What is the history on the bike? Recent purchase?
    How many miles?

    Sorry to see that. I am surprised it shifts al all. Good luck on the repair.

    the bike actually shifts fine surprisingly but i never got past 3rd gear so could be 4th or 5th.. i was told that the bike had rear ended a van but it didnt look to bad to me i mean the fairings werent on it but i didnt care because i was going to turn it into a stunt bike anyways.. it only has 14k miles

    Have you cut open the filter to see what else may be hiding there? If you have the pan off still, I'd look at the exposed part of the transmission in the chance the damage occurred in that section.

    If you hadn't already dumped the oil, I'd have suggested you send a sample off for oil analysis to see if there are any more clues to the extent of the damage.

    If you go to BikeBandit and look at the exploded view, you should be able to locate the part. However, I'd still be concerned about the damage I may not see. It's odd for one single gear to shed teeth without at least beating the hell out of the gear that tore them off. If you get ahold of a manual, dropping those gears isn't too hard.

    What caused that? Did you shift really hard or something? Just curious mainly.
