Too much heat when they powder coated it?

Sprocket bolts were over torqued. Excess force had to go somewhere.

Linkage bolts not greased well enough

Frozen linkage bearings

I've seen and messed with some pretty bad linkage bearings in the past , but can't remember ever seeing a swingarm break like that.

And there goes Jeffro. One of God's own prototypes. A super high-powered mutant of some kind never even considered for mass production. Too weird to live, and too rare to die.

Maybe the rear shock didn't compress on landing?

This a first for me as well.

Pfft... KTM's suck!

Well ,his brother Matt posts on here quite a bit. Wonder if he'll chime in. I'm almost thinking a shock failure of some type with a hard impact.

There were a few cracked swingbarms on Suzuki 2 strokes back in the day, so maybe they didn't notice the crack building underneath the powder coat?

That right thur is a 2-stroke, ladies and gents. It must have come on the pipe so hard it snapped the goldarn swingarm!

I wonder what sound it made.

Wow, what a low rider!!!!

|

12/22/2017 4:06 PM

Hope the rider is okay. Seems like it would be jumping off a 6 story building to do that.

Low center of gravity= better corners

massive jumps on old bike?

as a side note, what is the fascination with pouring money into rebuilding old beaters when KTM, Husky, and other Euro brands offer modern two strokes? people just love to tinker I guess

As a guy who is currently building a KX 125, I think it is just the fun and pride of the build. Anyone can buy a bike, only a few have the patience and skill to build one.

Plus it is still half the price to buy and rebuild one from the ground up.

Well , I own both. Nothing wrong with finding an older bike with low hours. And I can also say first hand , that these newer bikes aint got much on my 06' RM 250. I love my new Husky , but gawd dang I love the hell out of my old RM....she's a blast to ride.

You missed the sarcasm. According to some people only KTM's suck and snap in half. That couldn't be further from the truth.

No idea what happened but that won't buff out.
