    What could cause this damage?

    Guy posted this up over on Facebook. Said he purchased it like this. Only thing I can think of is the chain was too tight. Owner hit a bump too hard and the chain literally pulled the shaft back enough to crack the case.

    Costly repair that. The chain must have been real tight.

    Could be the output shaft bearing failing?

    Broken chain?

    Instead of spitting the chain out, it wedges between the case forward of the output shaft and forces the shaft in the opposite direction.

    Or maybe not. I would expect to see more damage forward of the shaft....

    Is there anything inside that case that could self destruct causing damage from the inside.

    Good point Mike. And a more likely scenario given the evidence in the photos.
    The transmission could have grenaded.

    I hope this motor gets stripped and photographed!

    I'm guna to out on a limb and say that a shifter fork got pulled between the gears... Any other takers?

    There's nothing in there to grenade. Even if the gears started throwing teeth it wouldn't be enough force to crack the case like that. At most it would have locked up the back tire and snapped the chain.

    I'll ask him if he'll tear it apart for us, because I'm curious as hell now.

    there is a slight possibility that it has a broken rod and its punched the gear cluster backwards.
    its a lot to imagine a tight chain could rip the back out of a tranny.

    Looking at the second photo more closely it like like the casing has been repaired previously, just to the right of where the earth lead is bolted on, there is also what looks like sealant or something on the bolt to the right.
