    Well someone blew up my motor

    Long story short. I知 new here. Just picked up a 2016 Yamaha fzs with 99 hours on it.

    Let my wifes cousin take it out (against my better judgement) and started smoking, oil all over the engine bay. Check engine lights.

    So I took it to Yamaha because I知 covered under factory warranty until 2021. They said it was a loose oil filter.

    Any suggestions? They said $11,000 to replace. Which is more than the ski is worth.

    Anyone gone through something like this before?

    Your options are rebuilding it buying a used engine

    Either previous owner or a shop. He hasn’t gotten back to me yet. Wasn’t a Yamaha filter tho.

    Yeah do your best under warranty or start making calls around south FL. I grabbed a used one with 50hrs on it for 3k. There was another at the time for $2800. Just ideas

    I guess it depends if they tried to submit something.

    Would be possible to clean it up really well, throw some oil in it, and take to another dealer?

    What failed? These motors can loose oil but has any actual damage occurred? Replace filter with OEM one and change the oil and run ski...... what is broken?

    or or find out what damage? Is compression Good? Does it run and make boost? Was I ridden despite warnings? Did it go into limp mode? Has timing chain gone slack or snapped?
