Question about kawasaki Motorcycles
How is iy possible if the bike was serviced at the dealers that something like this happend keep in mind the cost know with bend pistons and damage valves, the timing belt must have broked, so I want to establish on wich km it should have been checked or replaced or is it just bad luck on my account

Whatever the reason for the engine siezing, it will be to your advantage to replace the radiator as debris may already be blocking a number of the lines.
As to the overheating, the most likely reason is a failed water pump (most likely), or a thermostat stuck closed (least likely), or a coolant leak (noticeable). Since engine would be replaced, the water pump and thermostat would also be replaced and the leak would be verified upon installation of the new engine.
Incidentally, I was made to understand that Hyundai warranties their drivetrain for 10 years or 100,000 miles. I believe the engine is a part of the overall drivetrain system.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
Thank you for using FixYa.

before spending money on a new sit contact the dealer and see if there is a lowering kit for it. I have just lower my wifes 2007 vulcan 500 by 2 inchs. or talk to www.scootworks.com there are really great there

yep valves will hit piston if timing belt brake.timing belt keep your valves and piston timed.when intake valves and exhaust valve open.piston is on down stroke.the timing belt keep pistons and valves from colliding.your timing belt change is due at 60000 miles.but in some cases belt need to be inspect at 30000 miles.to be on the safe side.

ALL Nissans are interferance motors, most hondas have interferance motors depending on the engine model installed. Hopefully you engine is still good!!

your mechanics advice is dead on, sounds like a very solid tech. as i do not know the condition of the rest of your vehicle, i would consult with the same mechanic that gave you this advice and see what he thinks. if the rest of the car is in good shape, i may be a worthwhile repair. if its rusted underneath, close to needing brakes, etc etc you may spend this money then 6 months down the road have to spend another 1000 in maintenance. this is what needs to be considered. good luck!

Engines, chain- or belt-driven, can be classified as either free-running or interference, depending on what would happen if the piston-to-valve timing is disrupted. A free-running engine is designed with enough clearance between the pistons and valves to allow the crankshaft to rotate (pistons still moving) while the camshaft stays in one position (several valves fully open). If this condition occurs normally, no internal engine damage will result. In an interference engine, there is not enough clearance between the pistons and valves to allow the crankshaft to turn without the camshaft being in time.
An interference engine can suffer extensive internal damage if a timing belt fails. The piston design does not allow clearance for the valve to be fully open and the piston to be at the top of its stroke. If the belt fails, the piston will collide with the valve and will bend or break the valve, damage the piston, and/or bend a connecting rod. When this type of failure occurs, the engine will need to be replaced or disassembled for further internal inspection; either choice costing many times that of replacing the timing belt.
NOTE For manufacturer-s recommended service interval, refer to the maintenance interval chart located in this manual.
The average replacement interval for a timing belt is approximately 60,000 miles (96,000 km). If, however, the timing belt is inspected earlier or more frequently than suggested, and shows signs of wear or defects, the belt should be replaced at that time.
WARNING Never allow antifreeze, oil or solvents to come into with a timing belt. If this occurs immediately wash the solution from the timing belt. Also, never excessive bend or twist the timing belt; this can damage the belt so that its lifetime is severely shortened.
Fig. Never bend or twist a timing belt excessively, and do not allow solvents, antifreeze, gasoline, acid or oil to come into contact with the belt
Inspect both sides of the timing belt. Replace the belt with a new one if any of the following conditions exist:
Hardening of the rubber-back side is glossy without resilience and leaves no indentation when pressed with a fingernail Cracks on the rubber backing Cracks or peeling of the canvas backing Cracks on rib root Cracks on belt sides Missing teeth or chunks of teeth Abnormal wear of belt sides-the sides are normal if they are sharp, as if cut by a knife.
Fig. Worn teeth from excessive belt tension, camshaft or distributor not turning properly, or fluid leaking on the belt
If none of these conditions exist, the belt does not need replacement unless it is at the recommended interval. The belt MUST be replaced at the recommended interval.
WARNING On interference engines, it is very important to replace the timing belt at the recommended intervals, otherwise expensive engine damage will likely result if the belt fails.
