Clicking noise.... then snap!

Hey my Kawasaki people. I have a 2007 zx10r, lowered and stretched with 30.000 miles. She’s basically my everything. Well I was driving into work and hit a hard dip in the road and cracked the oil pan. The kawai maybe lost about 2 small drops of oil before I shut her off. I was 5 ft from my office when this happened. I noticed the oil leaking out and drainedall the oil, then pushed her into the shop. She pushed freely with no problems. I then proceeded to remove the mid exhaust to check out the crack. Then I got a call and had to move the bike out the way, now as I was pushing the her I was hearing a click ever ft or two. The further I push her it seemed to get harder to push. I stopped and made sure she wasn’t in gear and she wasn’t. I rolled her back about 4 ft and she moved freely but as I pushed forward I could feel the resistance getting greater. I pushed a little more to see what was going on and SNAP came from the engine. She then moved freely with no resistance but still clicked about ever ft or so.. my chain and sprockets are perfect, first thing I checked. Can someone please help me?

It's going to be impossible to diagnose this over the internet. Pull the header so you can pull the pan and inspect. Remove and cut open your oil filter. These will tell you the most. Also, pull the sprocket cover and inspect.

Inspect your swingarm and linkage also. Something may have cracked or broke there.

I pulled the oil pan and found the small crack in the pan causing the leak. No big deal. I inspected all the gears underneath and all the teeth and everything are perfect. No metal shavings in the oil pan.

Take the plugs out and the left side cover and manually turn the motor over

You were pushing it around in N, right? Not in gear with the clutch pulled? That ramping up of resistance sounds... odd.

Chain on sprocket noise is my guess. Extra-long chain, hard to adjust properly as swingarm motion has much more influence on angularity. You have bigger fish to fry than click-click-click. It was probably bunching up on the primary sprocket guard.

It may be a pig, but it's a pig with a rocket in it's ass!
