    Default Motor issues

    I'll try to explain as best a possible getting 2nd hand info. When the bike is cold it starts up perfect but once it warms up good the motor starts making noises and oil is not pumping or moving around or not reaching all the parts like it should. The bike will as shut off. Do i need to replace the whole engine?

    I'm not a resident expert but just curious what you mean by "the bike will as shut off"?
    Also, how do you know oil is not pumping or reaching all the parts?

    Check for codes.

    It could be the oil pressure switch or the actual pump.
    Check the magnets on your drain plugs for metal shavings. Also check the speedo sensor for metal shavings. If you find them then the oil pump may be degraded and causing low oil pressure. To be through simply remove the oil pan and check the bottom and the screens for metal.

    I had several issues with mine that I should have done something about well before now. Like speedo would bounce at first and sometimes it would say I'm doing 140 when cruising at 45. After seeing my oil pump I'm sure I didn't have much longer before problems got much worse. The good news is my crank and Conrad bearings and journals were immaculate despite the abuse my '06 has been subjected to.

    My vote is rebuild if you find these things. Change the shift forks as they are most surely worn the the cause of most of the shavings if you find them. And solid shift rods are a must.

    I may have you confused with someone else (I talk with a lot of people) but didn't you have some engine work done not long ago?
