Huh, I thought they started it at the shop? You said they charged it up and they thought it was a main bearing or a busted crank.

Did the oil light ever come on while it was running, did it spin the bearing? I would almost have to have said it was a rod bearing as they get oil last, at least typical plain bearing engines do.

I am not so sure they charged it up. It may have been the way I asked them. Something like did you charge it up and try to start it? And they just answered yes. So I may have assumed that they charged it, when they did not.
As far as the oil light, nothing nada. In fact I was looking for that when I restarted it and it went out immediately.
The thing was only running on 3, I guess it could have been that it blew the rod bearing and sealed up the oil hole with bearing material, hence the oil pressure. Kinda hard to say without looking at the engine. I will go look when I get a chance.

I was there last week getting a TPS linked to the ECM. I saw the bike and asked what the prognosis was. #1 & #4 crank bearings gone.

Was that your TPS sensor they ordered a couple weeks back? When we found that both of my sensors didn't work I was eying that sensor.
I need to look at the engine.

Not mine, I bought one on E-Bay. Better to read the shop manual before removing the tire next time. I broke the tire bead at the valve stem, snapped the sensor into peices...oopps!
If it snows here one more time I swear I'm gonna murder someone at the Weather Channel!

I saw nothing about any snow and the next thing I know it is a white slick mess. Maybe the Weather channel should call someone in the Bay area and ask them to look out the window, or at least Truckee.
