nicely riding along as normal! then suddenly severe vibrations from the bike! then the temperature gage went of the scale! loads of steam or smoke (not sure) coming from underneath the tank, now it wont start and if i try and start it, it sounds like a diesel engine in a car! also the vibrations were that bad it caused the back brake pedal to fall off!

any ideas?

thnks in advance ppl


EDIT: also i had a new clutch cable fitted yesterday! could this have been fitted wrong or something?
Just went to check out the bike a bit more! and have noticed the water tank is empty but it seems to have gone into the oil tank instead ?

did u undo the nut holding the cylidner to the bottom end of the engine to release the clutch cable holder? if so you may have f*cked the base gasket or something. smoke sounds like the head o-rings may well have failed.

It is not possible for the coolant to empty into the 2 stroke tank.

Take the spark plug out and cloe the kill switch to stop it sparking, run the engine using the starter for a few seconds, if you hear loud rumbling noises your big end is shot.

If water squirts out your head gaskets are shot.

The easiest way to inspect for piston damage is to remove the exhaust pipe and look through the exhaust port into the cylinder.

Your oil is on the RHS and the coolant is on the LHS as you look toward the front of the bike when your sitting on the seat.

Dip your finger in the tank and rub your finger ends together with both tanks to see if its oil or not.
