What's the history on that failure?

1986 RM250 ridden by a moron. All I got was the engine, The Junkyard dropped it off since I was the only one there who could bore a cylinder and rebuild a crank. And most everything else that required thought and skill. That's how I got the blown Ducati too.
So my guess on the RM is either no oil in gas or carb varnished up and running lean as a corn beef sandwich. Maybe both.

I don't know how people can not hear/smell/sense something is not normal with their machine. I'm a bit OCD and have saved two catastrophic engine failures due to failing cam train hardware, but even the average idiot should be able to notice a tick, whine or whatever, in an engine, that wasn't there before.

He drove THROUGH a cinder block wall. The water is a Koi pond with around $150,000 worth of koi. We ran a chain through the cab and lifted it straight up and out. When my guy set it on the ground I pulled the chain and then out of habit I closed the door. It latched. Hyundai makes a solid product

Why the Bancquart CBX can rev to 20k, you decide? It's a marketing tool for his performance shop.

The CBX valve float issue was apparently addressed as follows (quoting Lionel Brancquart):-

"...we have worked a lot on the weight of the moving and rotating parts! we are 55gr lighter (tappet, valve +2mm tige de 4mm, retainer titanium Xceldyne, springPSI, twin cones, pellet) x24 parts all the parts have a surface treatment, the connecting rods are longer and lighter to accommodate piston in 66mm 2 segments and above all we have a very efficient ignition from Emanuel Guyonnet (who manufactures all the ignition for Guy Coulon Tech3)..."
